Breaking the Waves

English Title: Breaking the Waves
Lars von Trier, Denmark, 1996, imdb
Review: 4.0 Uchuvas
Comment: I read somewhere that this is the first movie of the women drama trilogy from Lars von Trier (+"Dancing in the dark" and then "Dogville"...what a trio!!! I couldn't say which one is better!) This film is such a depressing drama! I think I cried more with this movie than with the last scene of Dancing in the Dark (and I could say that I don't cry with movies easily). Emily Watson is just astonishing here!! I always thought that this was the first Dogme film, but apparently is not... (Dogme 95). Please don't see this movie if you are down (not a bit).
