Focus: Apocalypse


Lars von Trier | 135min | Danmark, Sverige, Frankrike, Tyskland

  • År: 2011
  • Språk: Engelska
  • Originaltitel: Melancholia

Lars von Triers mästerverk är kanske filmhistoriens främsta film om apokalypsen. Se den på inspelningsplatsen Tjolöholms slott.

Hoppa på festivalbussen utanför Draken och stig in i Melancholias universum. Under färden bjuds publiken på fördjupning kring filmen och anekdoter kring inspelningen. Väl framme vid Tjolöholms slott kan du själv ta plats på verandan och skåda mot stjärnorna och ut i rymden precis som filmens huvudpersoner. Gå en rundtur i slottet och ta ett glas i samma festsal som Kirsten Dunsts karaktär åt sin bröllopsmiddag. Tillslut slår vi oss ner i slottshallen för huvudattraktionen – visning av Melancholia på inspelningsplatsen, innan det blir dags att ta bussen tillbaka till Göteborg.

Regissör: Lars von Trier

Lars von Trier, born in 1956. Lars von Trier is the co-founder of the Danish production company Zentropa as well as one of the founders of the Danish Dogma movement in the 1990s. Lars von Trier's films have won prizes worldwide. These include many of the major awards at Cannes Film Festival; The Palme d'Or for Dancer in the Dark, the Grand Prix du Jury for Breaking the Waves, the Best Actress award for Charlotte Gainsbourg's performance in Antichrist, as well as the Best Actress award for Kirsten Dunst's performance in Melancholia.

It was like waking from a dream: my producer showed me a suggestion for a poster. “What is that?” I ask.”It’s a film you’ve made!” she replies. ”I hope not,” I stammer. Trailers are shown... stills ... it looks like shit. I’m shaken. Don’t get me wrong ... I’ve worked on the film for two years. With great pleasure. But perhaps I’ve deceived myself. Let myself be tempted. Not that anyone has done anything wrong ... on the contrary, everybody has worked loyally and with talent toward the goal defined by me alone. But when my producer presents me with the cold facts, a shiver runs down my spine. This is cream on cream. A woman’s film! I feel ready to reject the film like a wrongly transplanted organ. But what was it I wanted? With a state of mind as my starting point, I desired to dive headlong into the abyss of German romanticism. Wagner in spades. That much I know. But is that not just another way of expressing defeat? Defeat to the lowest of cinematic common denominators? Romance is abused in all sorts of endlessly dull ways in mainstream products.And then, I must admit, I have had happy love relationships with romantic cinema ... to name the obvious Visconti! German romance that leaves you breathless. But in Visconti, there was always something to elevate matters beyond the trivial ... elevate it to masterpieces! I am confused now and feel guilty. What have I done? Is it ’exit Trier?’ I cling to the hope that there may be a bone splinter amid all the cream that may, after all, crack a fragile tooth ... I close my eyes and hope!
