A follow-up to the famous and provocative Antichrist by Lars von Trier. This time, the director of Breaking the Waves and Dancer in the Dark wants to make his very personal, psychological disaster film and a beautiful metaphor of the end of the world. The story of the film, starring Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg, revolves around two sisters. The younger one is just preparing to get married as a mysterious planet threatens to collide with Earth. The newly-wed husband is played by Alexander Skarsgård, his witness at the wedding by Stellan Skarsgård (in fact, Alexander’s father), and the sisters’ father by John Hurt.
