His family moved to Denmark in , after the Pinochet coup. At age 27, he changed tack and studied cinematography at the Danish National Film School. Melancholia won the award for best film at the European Film Awards, with Claro taking the cinematography prize. Melancholia has its own wedding and last day, and neither event ends in celebration. Hoberman after a festival screening. My own reaction was rather similar. It is an eccentric, rogue film that never obeys the usual rules of stylistic and emotional consistency.

FEATURE FILM PRODUCTION: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MANUEL ALBERTO CLARO BY CAMILLE HAIMET
By Yonca Talu on January 22, When the Chilean-born Danish cinematographer Manuel Alberto Claro teamed up with Lars von Trier for Melancholia , he not only shouldered the responsibility of delivering a sublime vision of the Apocalypse, but also of becoming a driving force in the expansion of an oeuvre whose existential depth and formal risk-taking never cease to propel cinema toward new configurations of modernity. In the case of The House That Jack Built , the sense of detachment comes from the construction of the script itself. The locations in The House That Jack Built are more clinical, with very few people, and landscapes play some role, while in Nymphomaniac , the action takes place in small rooms and is much more claustrophobic.
