The end of time
art photography – by © peter gartmann
Time – years, centuries, millennia – our life is drawing to a close.
Happiness disappears as if it was a dream. A dream? Like a grain of sand blown away by the wind.
Humans can no longer understand themselves. They no longer sow, nor do they reap. They fly between skies and oceans. We humans disappear in the circle of time, until black flags blow on contaminated soil. The beauty of this world drowned in the abyss of endless litter.
The world is sinking into chaos. The only question is when. The apocalypse, the end of time and of the world, is the annihilation of mankind.
We don’t know how heaven and earth are supposed to be created anew. The destruction is a divine plan until the end of the history of the world, the final judgement, and the creation of a new era without human beings. Nature will live on without us.
The apocalypse – the end of time – terrifyingly announces the end of the days of mankind. It will encompass our whole world. Mankind in all of the history of mankind with its crazy Babylonian visions and actions, in the final war between good and evil, light and darkness, floating towards a horrible end.
The film begins with an introductory sequence involving the main characters and images from space. These virtually still images reveal the key elements of the film: Justine the bride in deep melancholy with birds falling behind her; of a lawn with trees and sundial with two different shadows; Pieter Brueghel’s The Hunters in the Snow burning; the black horse collapsing in slow motion; Justine as a bride being swept along by a river; her wedding dress tangled in plant matter; and finally Justine and her nephew building their magic cave before Melancholia crashes into Earth.
Melancholia by Lars von Trier
