The most scandalous work at this year’s Cannes stars Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg as 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. Warning: ANTICHRIST contains scenes of extremely graphic sexual and violent content and is not suitable for children.
