WINNER, BEST ACTRESS CANNES 2011
Sisters Justine (Kirsten Dunst) and Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) find their already strained relationship deteriorating even further under the stress of Justine’s wedding — oh, and the fact that the Earth is about to be destroyed by a rogue planetoid. Did I mention it's a Lars Von Trier film? “Sure to inspire discussion and debate in ways no studio-made disaster movie possibly could.” (Variety)
