BREAKING THE WAVES (1996, DENMARK)
30 from the 90's (Post 21 of 30)
Breaking the Waves
Long, but moving Lars von Trier film of a marriage to…between two people that...you might say they were...You know this is a hard film to describe the plot! Let’s just say I liked the leads Stellan Skarsgård and Emily Watson and found the potentially over the top ending pretty nice.
One question I do want to ask. Von Triers sections his film in chapter headings where some of the following music plays: All the Way to Memphis by Mott the Hopple, In a Broken Dream by Python Lee Jackson and Rod Stewart, Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum, Cross Eyed Mary by Jethro Tull, Suzanne by Leonard Cohen, and Goodbye Yellow Brick and Your Song by Elton John.
So my question is, how did Lars Von Trier have access to my old album collection?
