The introductory sequence of the film 'Melancholia' (Lars von Trier).
Visual - Absolutely stunning, a symbolic abstract of the film's content, the character significance eventually understood. This becomes the melancholic point of reference for the viewer as the rest of the film tells the story of the character's personal distress.
Musical - 'The significance of the Wagnerian soundtrack from Tristan und Isolde, if death and love collide, we must hang on to our capacity for love until it transforms the power of death.' - Dr Stefan Bolea
