Adam's Review of Melancholia

6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


I am sure I have never seen a movie like this before. It was a hypnotic session. Conceptually, in its subdued and gentle tone the picture reveals the most secret frissons expressed by the romantics and the existentialists. Even though I knew what to expect before coming to the theater, I was greatly surprised by this completely new aesthetic and ethical experience. The movie is an excellent, albeit weird psychological experiment and, whether you like it or not, you are going to get a foretaste of Nothingness. Memento. It is one of the films you will never forget.
