Watched this film years about ten from the family (so I'm having a hard kinodetstvo), and decided to review it again with a girl despite all attempts of some friends we from the case to talk, they say no safe "tonight", and preparation "The Antichrist" Trier should not begin so. But us liked it. So to say, form for the Director takes precedence over the content, violent drama about the realities of this world, of love hate on religion faith, God, evil and dishonor. How far are you ready to go for a loved one how much you believe the correctness of their actions and how far you'd take this path, missed them all? Strong, insightful and sometimes very dirty movie, but in a big minus for him you can put not subject, the inhabitants of the town, not the slowness of the film to the primary action and no explicit scenes, no. The only drawback of this original painting is its final, completely destroying all the internal doubt in reality is impossible to benefit from the acts of the girls on the state of Jan, and put a big fat point in comprehension of this, showing a clear response to the question. The however, the film will not recommend a weak spirit people.

The audience in the depths of the soul afraid of Background trireme, because it is impossible to guess who you will be after viewing. "Breaking the waves" can be viewed as not fearing to go with mind. Perhaps it is a very good film of triera, according to compare with his other paintings, of course.

Here Trier even outdid himself. Joining in one film God, the girl with the unstable, terminally ill man, and true love.

The film is divided into heads, shot on the same camera that and "Dogville", the music plays only during the time of transition from one Chapter to another. Transitions is a special cause for admiration.

The cast is not very nice, but for the female lead Emily Watson need to give "Oscar", or it is a brilliant game, or the actress and really handle head.

The film is a lot of emotion but they hidden this may deter the casual observer, so if you are not used to the art house, it is better not begin to see Larsa'll sleep better.

The first film as not inferior to "Dogville" not in it.

With a good movie Fonterra.

This film was awarded numerous awards and prizes. He was applauded in many countries. Some consider it Christian. In I want, first of all, to understand.

I want to begin from afar. The word "charm" in the Russian language has two primary meanings. Main: the Beauty — charm, charm from someone or something beautiful, pleasant, attractive. But there are more. Spiritual charm — in the Orthodox creed the state of preliminaty, heavy spiritual disease of man, in which — flattering himself, self-deception, pride. The second meaning is almost forgotten. But I want to talk about this matter.

The film begins with the wedding of the main character, Bess McNeill with Ian, who works on an oil platform. The girl is happy to mind first desire girls — to surrender to her husband. Immediately after the wedding, directly into the clothing. But we will return.

Shortly after the wedding, the young fall to the funeral. Pastor says about him that he was a sinful man, and burn him in Hell. Yang doubt it, but Beth — not at all. We all know that he was a sinful man. Pastor no doubt that he's name of God. And he is very similar to the ROC, such as Chaplin and gundyaeva. In Russian language there was even such a thing — PGM (the Orthodoxy of the brain). You can say that the same. But instead of "Orthodoxy" is "Protestantism". In this, my opinion, spiritual charm. People believe that they talk with God or speak His name. All this can cause terrible consequences.

Bess the girl strange. Have her serious problems with mentality, which is very reminiscent of schizophrenia. She talks with God, who is the voice in her brain. And the God very similar to the pastor. He cruel and ruthless. It requires sacrifice. When there was the enticement? Obviously with childhood. She was born increased the atmosphere of a godless morality. There is a Law, but there is no God, , God it's the Law, soulless piece of paper. And what is the Law without God? Bess goes to the Church in order to speak with their God. And God is reading her moral requires her victims.

Does Bess Jan? In its own way, Yes. But the love of a seriously ill person. And this love is primarily physical. Bess wants to have a Jan. And parting them for her torture. It asks his God to Jan was on her constantly. And God fulfills her wish. But instead of a healthy and passionate man she gets paralyzed body. You requested — get it! Why is it so — and you too wanted. Now you to death will feel a sense of guilt. And that feeling will only increase. And no such terrible torture, which you for not would come up with. In this game was drawn and Jan. It becomes a vampire. He drank the energy from a young girl. He lives about her. They serve the one God. They partners, very well that to do. In their action there is an inner logic, understandable only to them. the Only person who is trying to save the girl was Dr. Richardson. It tries to reason with her, but is ashamed. Bess runs it and asked for her to come. In the end, and this wrong person re: he calls the mentally ill — "heart person."

Bess knows that need this God to him to cajole. To sacrifice for a victim. Yang requires that she was given to men. Any, no parsing. Mouth Jan God says. Bess in not even doubt. The God of compares her with the Magdalene. And no matter what Mary Magdalene Jesus Christ is not forced into prostitution. And no matter what this behavior — treason. God — the father of lies, so the substitution of concepts for his business as usual. Do Bess surrender drunk sailors? She is disgusted, but fails. This is required by her God. This requires her husband. She he sacrifices himself and makes good business. What else will require her Moloch? The honor of his she has already donated.

I want to say a few words about Lars Von Trier. No one Director so not mocking characters the series it. After filming "Dancing in the dark", from the female lead role, the singer Bjork, which was formerly unstable woman, has been a serious deterioration in her mental health. Obviously, Von Trier and Bess one God. This God — the Prince of this world. And him the Director brings in the sacrifice the actors and their characters. Background Trier has created a world in which there is God, and it all characters, wittingly or unwittingly, serve the devil. Have it worked. But to congratulate him that I can not can.

In one of the episodes we hear the bells ringing. But it's a hell of a bell. Because in a world where there is no God there are no others not maybe.
