  1. Psycoteraphy's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

  2. lemonish5's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

    a triumph of faith, feels very close to Dostoevsky, esp. The Idiot. Emily Watson gets two thumbs up

  3. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

    Yes, I would call it great, with it’s pop tune pastorals, raw performances and ringing bells, but Von Trier’s best? Gimme Melancholia, Antichrist or Dancer in the Dark any day.

  4. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

    There are numerous movies about crippled husbands who beg their wives to go on to explore their own sexuality with other men, but few films had managed to do it as realistic and Catholic religious as Lars von Trier. A film with all his fingerprints on it: the documentaric no-music style, the numerous chapters telling mini-stories, frank sexscenes and fabulous attention to acting. A hard but rewarding watch.

  5. Gabriele Mariotti's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

  6. angeldromero's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

    A real journey of love and faith. An irremediable and wicked love story. An exploration of religion and its repression. The performance of Emily Watson in what was her first movie is breathtaking and it will definitely be remember in the decades to come.

  7. GEMMA's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

    Espectacular actuación de Emily y el resto de actores. El argumento te lleva al límite de lo bueno y lo malo: ¿existe? LARS VON TRIER es un profundo conocedor de la conciencia humana. Deberían estudiarse sus películas en la carrera de psicología!

  8. guillermo's rating of the film Breaking the Waves

    Poetic. Politic. Deep understanding of human condition. Great work of Von Trier, but the best is Emily Watson's acting.
