I touched upon depression in my last post how it has been a constant struggle for myself. I've never been diagnosed with depression, but I strongly believe that we have all experienced it to some degree. I recently saw the film Melancholia, a film starring Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg and directed by Lars Von Trier. Set in a time where the end of the world is imminent, it beautifully depicts how depression can affect a human so deeply. With existence nearing an end, each character loses themselves in sadness, with some finding themselves again (at least in a state of understanding their depression). Von Trier accurately delves into what it means to experience an ever consuming sadness and in what ways it can affect the person and those who care for them. The cinematography is a work of art in and of itself. With each camera frame as if it were a painting hung on the wall of an impressive english estate that the film is set. If depression is something that affects you or a loved one, I suggest this movie as it brings to light why sadness is one of the most powerful emotions that we can experience. If you do see it, I suggest that you go with somebody and grab a cup of coffee afterward to discuss the movie and digest its contents, it is definetly a lot to take in.
