The advertisement for which Justine is supposed to come up with a tagline, is based on an oil painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder titled "The Land of Cockaigne", an unflattering portrayal of excess and spiritual emptiness in a mythical land of plenty. See more »
The picture of the interactions between both planet orbits taken from internet shows only the trajectory of the fly-by planet changes because of the gravitational forces and there's no effect on the earth orbit. According to the laws of physics it is wrong. Both planets trajectories should be affected, the lighter planet trajectory would get affected the most. See more »

I've never seen anything so painfully familiar. Every move of Justine, her every word echoes with the heartache of a melancholiac. And the inability of the others to understand this pain, their inability to feel it and understand - it only makes it more familiar to the ones drowning in this mute slow-motion everyday despair. After watching this movie I went home without saying a word, I sat down on my chair and sat there silently for about an hour. I like Lars von Trier, I liked his movies before, but this one was a headshot. In this one film Lars von Trier succeeded to show all the ultimate emptiness of the everyday rituals, the endless longing of a melancholiac and the unbearable helplessness of this condition - like a bulletproof glass cocoon around you, muting the sounds and making the colors dim. I vote "excellent", 'cause this film is closer to my heart than any other I've seen before.
