Two sisters find their relationship challenged as a nearby planet threatens to collide into the Earth. Director Lars Von Trier offers another interesting movie, one that seems to not be all about apocalyptic events that degenerate into visual effects extravaganzas, but more about angst and self-conscious pondering, which is in fact very much Von Trier's territory. It might not be as controversial as his "Antichrist" was, but just as intense and suprising. The cast is also fascinating : Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt, Udo Kier, Stellan Skarsgard and his son Alexander Skarsgard ("Generation Kill"). Dunst and Sutherland are certainly surprising choices, but I trust Von Trier's casting ability. He always seems to get the most surprising performances out of his actors. The only problem will be how to get your eyes on this film. It will certainly open at Cannes, but few of us mortals will benefit from that. So far, release dates are only available for UK (July 1st), Denmark (May 26), France (October 19), Germany (September 29), Poland (May 27), Finland (June 3rd), Sweden (May 27), Norway (May 27).
