Breaking the Waves is a 1996 film directed by Lars von Trier, Cinematography Robby Müller and starring Emily Watson. Set in the Scottish Highlands in the early 1970s, it is about an unusual young woman, Bess McNeill, and of the love she has for Jan, her husband, who asks her to have sex with other men when he becomes immobilized from a work accident. The film is an international co-production led by Lars von Trier’s Danish company Zentropa. It is the first film in Trier’s Golden Heart Trilogy which also includes The Idiots (1998) and Dancer in the Dark (2000). Breaking The Waves is widely regarded as one of the most distinctive European movies of the 1990s, marking von Trier’s movement toward his influential Dogma 95 school of filmmaking, which emphasizes realistic situations of contemporary life, filmed without background music and with a hand-held, restlessly moving camera.
