One of most celebrated filmmakers of our time, Lars Von Trier is back with the beautiful, terrifying, and altogether engrossing ANTICHRIST. The talk of 2009 Cannes Film Festival, where star Charlotte Gainsbourg took home the award for Best Actress, the full, unedited version of this eagerly-awaited film promises to captivate audiences this fall.
A grieving couple (two-time Oscar-Nominee Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg) retreat to Eden, their isolated cabin in the woods, where they hope to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse.
"A powerfully made film. The performances by Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg are heroic and fearless. Von Trier's visual command is striking. And if you can think beyond what he shows to what he implies, its depths are frightening. IT IS A REAL FILM. Von Trier has reached me and shaken me.""
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Charlotte Gainsbourg gives a phenomenal, fearless performance. I've never witnessed a performance like it."
Melissa Anderson, The Village Voice
"I would be lying if I didnt admit that this impossible movie kept me hooked from start to finish."
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
"Brilliantly made, it's beautiful to look at, its partly surreal and partly naturalistic & brilliant."
Stephen Holden, The New York Times
"(Von Trier)'s a real moviemaker, a composer of rich imagery as evocative as it is provocative, a master matador at waving a red cape in front of the most jaded viewers and getting them to charge. What's certain is that serious film people on several continents will be talking about von Trier's latest affront, defending or deriding it, finding it hard to ignore. Short of a flat-out masterpiece, what more can movies offer?"
Richard & Mary Corliss, Time
"A must-see. A true, lacerating original."
Michael Phillips, Time Out Chicago
"I don't think I breathed for the last half - out of shock, out of stress, out of disbelief. This is to say that von Trier had us all. Von Trier is a consummate filmmaker...He has ideas and vision and some humor. He can get an actor to do anything and do it well."
