Melancholia is a 2011 Danish art film written and directed by Lars von Trier, starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Alexander Skarsgård, Cameron Spurr, and Kiefer Sutherland. The narrative revolves around two sisters during and shortly after one's wedding, while an approaching rogue planet is about to collide with Earth. The film prominently features music from the prelude to Richard Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde (1857–59).
Von Trier's initial inspiration for the film came from a depressive episode he suffered and the insight that depressed people remain peaceful in catastrophic events. The film is a Danish production by Zentropa, with international co-producers in Sweden, France, and Germany. Filming took place in Sweden.
The film premiered 18 May 2011 at the 64th Cannes Film Festival. Dunst received the festival's Best Actress Award for her performance.
Melancholia is the second entry in von Trier's unofficially titled "Depression Trilogy", having been preceded by Antichrist and followed by Nymphomaniac.
Two sisters find their already strained relationship challenged as a mysterious new planet threatens to collide with Earth.
