Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg are a bereaved couple who retreat to their remote cabin — ominously named Eden — to repair their broken marriage and confront their deepest fears. But in the hands of von Trier, the visionary behind Dogville, Dancer in the Dark and Breaking the Waves, the tale of a relationship in crisis takes a turn toward the twisted, dark and primeval, and it’s clear this couple won’t be out of the woods anytime soon.

“The most shocking film in the history of the Cannes Film Festival!” – The Sunday Telegraph

“I don’t think I breathed for the last half — out of shock, out of stress, out of disbelief.” – Boston Globe
