Von Trier always gets good performances out of his actors/actresses; I just don't believe the story he put them through.

I wish I loved it -- I do love many of Von Trier's movies, I trust his ambition, generally even if I do not think the movie stood for whatever reason, I am glad that he is on the scene. But this movie just didn't come together, not for me; all movies are lies, they're all stories, they (almost all of them) they require suspension of disbelief. I never got near that with this movie. As always, he gets good performances out of his actors/actresses; it's the story, and the interwoven stories that make it up, all of that is what did not work for me.
