ANTICHRIST

Lars von Trier
DK, DEU, FRA, S, I, Polen 2009
108min
V'09

After the death of their child, a grieving couple retreat to \"Eden\", their so-called 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.
With Antichrist, Lars von Trier is in no danger of jeopardizing his reign as the most controversial major director working today. Visually gorgeous to a fault and teeming with grandiose if often fascinating ideas that overwhelm the modest story that serves as their vehicle, this may be the least artistically successful film von Trier has ever made. As such, commercial prospects appear slim, though many of the auteur's most ardent fans will want to see the film anyway. And they should. (Peter Brunette)
In any case, I can offer no excuse for Antichrist. Other than my absolute belief in the film - the most important film of my entire career! (Lars von Trier)
