“Melancholia. Since we have testimony of mankind, we find it expressed in the most beautiful images, words, melodies ever conceived by human beings. Melancholy is both the guarding angle and the luring demon escorting a spirit on its walk on the edge of despair and madness. Melancholy is the longing for a completeness that is lost – often inexplicable, often incurable. And although in many cases this bittersweet solute turned out to be a deadly poison, it is the drug that lets us experience the metaphysical foundations of our existence and inspires us to transcend our limitations, guiding us towards the heartland of a territory that will never be fully discovered: our soul.
The film tries to catch the beauty of Melancholy and its transforming power; it is a time journey through a breakable world, the nostalgic and abstract thoughts and mystical places represent eternity.”
