Melancholia

There's a marriage celebration in a castle
where the bride is hassled
for a campaign tagline.
Everyone would die
did you just sigh?
Back to the title
Melancholia must be that high.

~ Hazel, Stasia Desiderata



Has anyone seen Melancholia yet? I haven't. My coffee and movie meetup group sent me an invite to watch this film which is shown this week in Bangkok.  According to summaries around Lars Von Trier creates psychological devastation.  The sooner we get over it, the better: nobody survives. "In a way, the film does have a happy ending," remarks Trier.  Everyone perishes and there's a happy ending(?). That might send me to the theater to find out how true, how come and why. There are beautiful scenes in the trailer. Watch.
