“the fusion of form and content is so perfect that it borders on the sublime.” – New York Magazine
“Plenty of moments in Melancholia are painfully funny. Some moments are even painful to watch, but there was never a moment when I thought about the time or my next movie or did not care about the characters or had anything less than complete interest in what was happening on the screen.” – Village Voice
