Abstract

The statement below by Lars von Trier on his end of the world film Melancholia (2011) is one of a long line of manifestos, statements, and proclamations von Trier has issued before the release of each of his films. While proclaiming that he wanted to embrace German Romanticism, von Trier's main character Justine (Kirsten Dunst) is far more enveloped by a sense of ennui about the world ending.
