Reputation Getting Stronger with 21 Grams

Gainsbourg holding acting for long time, started making music after acting in more than twenty five films and recording her talency with rewards. Actress vocilising the songs of the soundtrack ablum of three films that she acted as a leading role, brought her first album named &ldquoCharlotte for Ever&rdquo with the musiclovers.

Antichrist Performance That Brought Sound

She was againg at the leading role of &ldquoAntichrist&rdquo film of Lars Von Trier producted in 2009. The film was about a trauma of a family which lost their children. The things creating a masterpiece from such an ordinary and a moderate task which can be found in 3th class American horror films and such ordinary are the genius of Trier during approaching this task and flawless and glamorous acting of Charlotte Gainsbourg. The film was made &ldquoproper&rdquo fort he commercial cinema audience after the judge and carnival special presentation in Cannes by removing some bawdy parts but film also brought debates with this way. Charlotte Gainsbourg showed an incredible acting especially in depression attack scenes. Cannes already paid her away. Gainsbourg&rsquos reward picking character says &ldquoa crying woman is a scheming woman&rdquo in the film. The sentence that can be understood as &ldquoCrying woman is cheating woman&rdquo tells the things that the woman accepted as &ldquoantichrist&rdquo done to the &ldquoangle heart&rdquo man in the film.

In addition Antichrist was not a film belonging to one type like &ldquoDogma 95&rdquo. In other words it was not a type film. It achieved to be both a physicological tension and a savageness film. Furthermore it deserves even being a political drama with the phylosophical critisizm with respect to its physicological depth.

and Melancholia

Lars Von Trier melt the painting, literature, physicology, sociology, science, music trends in same point with his 2011 production film about doomsday melancholia. This convulsive cinema insight was vigorously applauded. The scenerio of the film that Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kirsten Dunst and Alexander Skarsgard shared its leading roles was told in classification style same as the manner in Antichrist but this time it was told in two parts: Justin and Claire.

It is possible to see again the signs of the values and dogma ideology Trier adopts in his denomination, metaphors, the musics he choose and in the seperation to two levels upon Justin which was performed by Dunst and Claire which was performed by Gainsbourg in his film shooted in Sweden.

The film was a candidate of Palme d&rsquoOr in 64th Cannes Film festival. It lost the reward to the &ldquoTree Of Life&rdquo film directed by Terres Malick that shares similar elements with Melancholia with regards to its cosmic scenes and reductive approach of human pattern in macro universe. Dunst was rewarded as &ldquoThe Best Actress&rdquo. This reward was given to Gainsbourg with the striking role in the &ldquoAntichrist&rdquo film. Gainsbourg who was Trier&rsquos new favorite in &ldquounbalanced woman&rdquo roles made strong impression in Melancholia film.
