Deadly boring. Give me back my 150 minutes. Total waste of time. I will never understand why people are so fascinated by these artsy craps. My eyes still hurt because of the pixeling..

Absolute garbage. The only marginally redeeming scenes in the movie are the scenes where Emily Watson prays to God and plays both parts. There's a difference between fine art and pretention, and this movie's a pretentious exercise Absolute garbage. The only marginally redeeming scenes in the movie are the scenes where Emily Watson prays to God and plays both parts. There's a difference between fine art and pretention, and this movie's a pretentious exercise in Christianity-bashing and male-bashing, all while making you watch Emily Watson suffer horribly for over two and a half hours. It can not be said enough: Garbage. Expand

This should be called 'breaking the ba**s'. trier tries so hard to be bold, original, daring, outrageous, and cutting-edge while utterly failing to realize his brand of primitivism's capacity to shock, enliven, or inspire is This should be called 'breaking the ba**s'. trier tries so hard to be bold, original, daring, outrageous, and cutting-edge while utterly failing to realize his brand of primitivism's capacity to shock, enliven, or inspire is about 70 yrs too late. trier confuses crudeness for vitality, haphazardness for audacity, and clumisness for truth. rub our faces in the sewage of retardo emotions and, hey, maybe we'll be cleansed of bourgeois hypocrisy and b.s... stick with imamura instead, who while dragging us thru the mud of life, also had the necessary discipline of means and concentration of vision to allow meaning to evolve and crawl out of the primordial soup of human experience. von trier's films are ultimately all about his infatuation with his punkish rebel self. boring! that so many critics suck up to him is proof that they are geeky rebel-wanna-be's themselves.
