In Antichrist (Lars Von Trier, 2009), the inverted story of a modern-day Adam
(He) and Eve (She) and the death of their son, we witness the deep wound that
von Trier himself suffered when his mother revealed to him a truth. He would
later reveal this truth to the general public, and I follow the film’s own allusive
structure by returning to this revelation only at the end of this report.
