Thomas Beale says: "It’s Justine’s (Kirsten Dunst) wedding day. Everything should be perfect, but in her own temperamental nature, Justine makes things difficult. She is forced to trudge through tiresome rituals for the benefit of family and friends, including her sister Claire (Charlotte Gainsbourg) with the looming and inevitable apocalypse intensifying relations. Though not quite as daring as Von Trier’s previous films, Melancholia is an emotional and visual attack on love, romanticism, social rituals, Hollywood etc and an insightful window into severe depression. Von Trier is the only one who could’ve made this film, and the only one who would’ve dared to."
