Always controversial, director Lars Von Trier turns his hand to science fiction drama in this apocalyptic study of how individuals respond differently to impending doom. Opening with a highly stylised vision of how the world might end, Von Trier then takes us to a lush wedding where melancholic Justine (Kirsten Dunst) clashes with her highly strung sister as a rogue planet looms in the sky. Enigmatic, moody and visionary – it’s another unforgettable Von Trier experience.
