Is an opus magnum. Available on torrent. Not for the faint of heart, typical Von Trierisque manic depressive captivating movie and a brilliant performance by Gainsbourg (Cannes Best actress, 09) as a regular housewife who turns into a vindictive, self-mutilating, genitia hacking, husband blaming/killing monster after their child dies in an accident while the couple is busy humping like theres no tomorrow. Defoe is good as well. When will this be in US theatres??

Talking of movies I was thinking of 5 of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen and this is now firmly in second place. The hallowed list
  1. The clockwork orange (Kubrick)
  2. Antichrist (Von Trier)
  3. Shining (Kubrick)
  4. ..
  5. .. (multi-way ties for the 4th and 5th spots).
