Synopsis of Melancholia

Melancholia is a 2011 science fiction drama film written and directed by Lars von Trier, starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Kiefer Sutherland. The narrative revolves around two sisters in dispute while the life of the planet is threatened as a rogue planet approaches, portending a deadly collision. Trier's main idea for the film was to dramatise how a depressive person reacts more calmly than others in a situation of high stress. The film was a Danish majority production through Zentropa, with international co-producers in Sweden, France, Germany and Italy. Filming took place in Sweden. The film makes references to romantic art and prominently features Richard Wagner's overture from Tristan und Isolde.
