** BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Everyone dies, but Justine is able to come to a kind of peace with herself in the face of the apocalypse, and create a way for her sister and nephew to be together at the end. Von Trier has said it's the happiest ending he's ever written.]]

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Pretty much breaks the scale on the cynicism side. It doesn't really matter that the world is going to end and possibly all life in the universe will be extinguished; Life is so shitty and devoid of meaning that it's a good, perhaps even beautiful thing. Sort of justified, in that the whole scenario is a metaphor for depression, except that the director is pretty much romanticizing it with this film.

''Melancholia'' is a 2011 SpeculativeFiction film written and directed by Creator/LarsVonTrier. It mainly focuses on the relationship between the [[SiblingYinYang two sisters Justine and Claire]], played by Creator/KirstenDunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg. The movie is divided into two parts, the first about Justine's wedding, the second about the upcoming fly-by of the rogue planet [[DoubleMeaningTitle Melancholia]] that's drifting through the solar system. The focus lies on how the characters relate to the events surrounding them, from the mundane event of a wedding to the possibility of a planetary collision.

* BlessedWithSuck: Von Trier basically explores the idea how people with depression can function better than other under certain circumstances.
