In all three films of director Lars Von Trier's "Depression Trilogy" ("Antichrist" / "Melancholia" / "Nymphomaniac"), there is noteworthy symbolism and plot points involving a window inside a house. The symbolism varies and has different levels of significance in the three films; story/plot-wise, though also very similar in ways as well, involving the characters and stories, depending on which films are compared.

Very rarely I comment on IMDb, but I felt this was necessary. The film is an excuse for porn, if there was just half the amount of turning points, character development, surprise, tension, deeper meaning... as there is uncensored penis and pussy, this film may have saved itself from the hall of shame in post-modern storytelling.
Frankly, I don't like the attitude of putting someone down, I'd rather recognise my own shadow and deal with that internally... but it comes down to more than a matter of subjectivity when a film that lacks any type of spiritual or even psychological depth makes its way to the screen.
