Note: The following text may contain spoilers

MELANCHOLIA is a drama about two women experiencing family dysfunction and mental health issues at the same time that a rogue planet is on a collision course with Earth.

Nudity

There is focus on a woman's breasts as she lies next to a river naked. Natural nudity is also visible when a woman is helped out of a bath.

There is a brief sex scene in which a clothed woman is seen riding a man in long shot. There are also infrequent uses of strong language ('f**k') and scenes of moderate threat as it is implied that the Earth is imminently on the point of destruction.
