Directed by Lars von Trier
Based on a screenplay by Carl Theodor Dreyer, this
brilliantly original exploration of the dark passions of a woman scorned,
unfolds in shimmering North Sea marshlands and gloomy subterranean
passageways. Von Trier has created a haunting work of mythic realism.
Loosely adapted from the play by Euripides. "Exhilarating" (Chicago
Reader). 76 minutes.
