This film is causing an actual pain, but it's worth every second. Emotionally very strong. The acting is really impressive, Emily Watson is sublime.

Von Trier movie about a very religious wife whose husband had an accident at sea that left him paralyzed. He wants her to have sex with other people (he's not quite sane after the accident and wants the best for her), which is unthinkable in a such a small god fearing town (and she doesn't really want it either). It was believable but somehow did not move me as other Von Trier movies have.
