Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg are among today's finest actors. Then, how, can Lars von Trier take that talent and completely waste and ruin it? Unfortunately, this film is full of gimmicks and imagery that does not make sense. Sure it's not supposed to. But I don't really want to see films like this and I wouldn't have had it not been for the actors. Sure Charlotte Gainsbourg is amazing, but still, this film is pretty much unnecessary and superfluous.
