Absolutely brutal. Visually and psychologically.
🌲A solid choice for any viewers looking for something disturbing & morbid in content🔩, but also spiritual & art-housey in context.🌲 8/10
Actively psychological. Thick atmosphere. Gore is sparse, but intense. Not for the average horror viewer.
A very weird film about grief, fear and human nature. It's abrasive and brutal- definitely not for everyone.
about a woman torn between her thesis, motherhood and matrimony and a man who presents himself as her savior but is unable to understand her
Masterfully brutal, shit-tinted glasses view of nature in the raw. Powerful story ... if you’re in the mood
This disturbed me greatly, moved me profoundly; I adored it, I hurt during it, I cried for it. Riveting commentary on the madness of grief.
Lars Von Trier explores the horrors or evil of our nature, and nature itself. “Chaos reigns”

A shocking, and thought provoking look at mental health, grief, and loss. Has some extremely disturbing scenes, but its ultimately beautiful
