    Good movie, on a par with Antichrist, and with another fantastic performance from Charlotte Gainsbourg. Like Antichrist, it's filled with beautiful imagery and a sense of sadness and doom. Also like Antichrist, it's not without its flaws: the film doesn't feel entirely satisfying, Justine's melancholia makes her a very unsympathetic figure, to the point where you wonder why the other characters put up with her so much, and the bit where she reveals some psychic ability just so Von Trier can add in another dose of nihilsm feels very out of place. 3 years 11 months ago

    The story was a bit slow in my opinion, but the great acting and amazing cinematography really made up for that. Film title matches the overall feeling of the movie. 4 years 10 months ago

    this movie is so wonderful! people can see this movie but few can connect to the discreet symbolisms blatantly shown up front or as a background in this movie.

    spoiler

    In a literal sense, this movie is depressing but if you watch it for what it means, for what the planet Melancholia is representing, then it becomes beautiful.
