Medea



Directed by Lars von Trier
1988
Starring: Henning Jensen, Udo Kier, Baard Owe

Cinematic genius Lars von Tier explores the dark passions of a woman scorned in this shocking and powerful film adapted from a screenplay by the great Carl-Theodore Dreyer.

The drama unfolds in shimmering marshlands and gloomy subterranean passageways. Medea is a foreign sorceress, abandoned by Jason, her lover. In a fit of mad, jealous rage, she plots a vicious revenge and murders her own children.

Medea is a revelation - the discovery of a rarely-seen, legendary film from the director of Dancer in the Dark, Breaking the Waves, and Dogville.

Arghh! I wanted to hate it but loved it anyway! For a family man like me, you will surely hate writer and director Lars von Trier for having a movie like this. But, ok.. for the sake of art, go ahead! watch this, people!
