Cinematic genius Lars von Trier explores the dark
passions of a woman scorned in
this shocking and powerful film adapted from a
screenplay by the great
Carl-Theodor Dreyer (The Passion of Joan Of Arc).
The drama unfolds in shimmering marshlands and gloomy
subterranean passageways. Medea is a foreign
sorceress, abandoned by Jason, her lover. In a
fit of mad, jealous rage, she plots a vicious
revenge and murders her own children.
Medea is a revelation-the discovery of a
rarely-seen, legendary film from the director of Dancer
In the Dark, Breaking the Waves,
and Dogville. While making it, Lars von
Trier claimed to be in
constant telepathic communication with the co-author
of the original script (based on the play
by Euripides)-Carl-Theodor Dreyer.
