Synopsis

In a small coastal town in Scotland, Bess, a religious young woman, falls in love with and marries a handsome oil rig worker. An unfortunate work accident cripples him for life, which shatters Bess’s world completely, especially when he encourages her to take on other lovers.

MUBI's take

From controversial director Lars von Trier comes the first entry in his Golden Heart trilogy, which was followed by The Idiots and the Palme d’Or winning Dancer in the Dark. Starring Emily Watson in an uncompromising performance, Breaking the Waves remains one of Von Trier’s finest achievements.
