It was 1.13 a.m. last night when I decided to watch this film I had rented without paying much attention to the plot. Well, it’s a very interesting story if you can survive the first 8 minutes in which apparently disconnected scenes are shown. At the beginning I thought it was one of those boring films of art that were not made to be watched in the middle of the night. However, it became absolutely intriguing as the story unfolded. Kirsten Dunst plays the role of a melancholic girl superbly and certainly deserved the award she received in Cannes. Melancholia is a blue planet, hence its name, that’s approaching Earth and is about to collide though. It certainly makes you wonder about the so feared apocalypse.
