The movie started a heated controversy during its premiere at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, with most critics praising the film for its technological accomplishments, while bitterly divided over its merits or lack thereof. Many detractors accused the movie of being deeply misogynistic as well as artless {{Euroshlock}}. Not helping was von Trier (facetiously, we hope) declaring himself the "best director in the world" and Gainsbourg winning Best Actress.

* DarkerAndEdgier: As ''TrashHumpers'' (Which came out in the same year, oddly enough) was for HarmonyKorine is ''Antichrist'' for Lars von Trier; a new dark-and-edgy low in an oeuvre already known for its morbidity. It set the tone for ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' and ''Film/{{Nymphomaniac}}'' after it.

The film centers around [[NoNameGiven "He" and "She"]] (Creator/WillemDafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg, respectively) attempting to deal with the grief surrounding the death of their infant son. He, a psychologist, proposes exposure therapy at their cabin in the woods appropriately called [[RuleOfSymbolism "Eden"]], due to skepticism surrounding traditional medication-based treatment. Things go FromBadToWorse. Much, much worse...

The movie started a heated controversy during the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, some critics praising it as a master work of art, some others decrying the very explicit sexual and violent content, or even accusing the film of being strongly misogynistic.
