Antichrist Reivew: Marriage Is Hell

Antichrist Reivew: Marriage Is Hell

Danish auteur Lars Von Trier has made a career out of controversy. Films like “The Idiots” in which perfectly sane people act like the mentally handicapped for artistic purposes, or “Manderlay” in which he attempts to prove that African Americans yearn for, and therefore doom themselves to perpetual slavery, are magnets for dissection. His newest work, “Antichrist,” begs for similar treatment. Von Trier contends that the film is a sincere horror picture about how the universe was not created by God, but rather by Satan, and thus nature itself is evil. But like most of his films, his comments usually cannot be taken at face value. This film can’t be nailed down by any one interpretation, and to take a cinematic prankster like Lars Von Trier at his word would be an error in judgment, and would never capture the vast beauty or revulsion the movie conjures up.

The film is built of two characters, He and She, played by Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg, both of whom create harrowing portrayals of two deeply damaged individuals. He is a pedantic, overly cerebral psychoanalyst and She is a wounded woman working on her doctoral thesis. They are married and they’ve just lost a child, the death of which opens the film in a prologue that is so crisply photographed in luxurious black and white the pathos of the images gives way to awe; another filmic prank as the audience is taken in by the beauty of the picture while witnessing the horror of a young child’s death, making the viewer question if the soothing images soften the blow of the tragedy or heighten it.
