One of contemporary cinema’s most controversial filmmaker Lars von Trier (Europa, Breaking the Waves, Dancer in the Dark) shook up the film world when he premiered Antichrist at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. In this graphic psychodrama, a grief-stricken man and woman – a searing Willem Dafoe (Platoon, The Last Temptation of Christ) and Cannes best actress Charlotte Gainsbourg (Jane Eyre, 21 Grams) – are grieving the death of their only small son. She is initially admitted to hospital following the incident, but her husband - a therapist - insists on taking her to their remote forest cabin, 'Eden', and looking after her himself, repairing their broken hearts and finding each other again. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse. Presented in four chapters with a prologue and epilogue, the film changes into controversial exploration of depression, guilt, sexuality and increasingly bizarre and brutal rituals. It is a visually sublime, emotionally ravaging journey to the darkest corners of the possessed human (woman) mind, a disturbing battle of the sexes that pits rational psychology against age-old superstition.
