With the Lars Von Trier back in Cannes this week following a 7-year ban, we're rewatching the maverick director's Palme d'Or-nominated apocalyptic disaster movie.
As Justine (Kirsten Dunst) arrives for her wedding reception in her sister's mansion home, her big day resurfaces a battle against her own inner demons. Whilst at the same time Earth is threatened by an imminent collision with Planet Melancholia - whose presence becomes increasingly ominous as the film moves towards its truly spectacular finale.
Kirsten Dunst won the Best Actress award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for her performance, and stars alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt and Alexander Skarsgård.
