Breaking the Waves

Lars von Trier Dinamarca, 1996

ihor's rating of the film Ondas do Destino

From a bare look at the plot this film can appear a typical melodrama. Essentially it's just a tragic love story set in working class religious Scottish Highlands. Trier's magic though, in the tradition of Cassavetes and Fassbinder, transforms this base into an intense psychological study of human passion and it's extremes. All while a realist style challenging beauty and perversion is at play.
