Tragedy of a “femme revoltée”. Lars von Trier's (and Carl Theodor Dreyer’s) Medea Lars von Trier’s Medea is part of the successful line of filmic adaptations of Euripides’ myth, and it is one of the best outcomes of these transcripts. Danish director decided to set on the screen the script by Carl Theodor Dreyer (unfortunately never put on stage), to which the movie stays substantially true. This essay considers the structure and intentions of Dreyer's script, which shows a portrait of a headstrong and determined character, far from the barbaric fury of the Greek myth. Lars von Trier plunges Dreyer's rebel Medea in a wet and foggy setting, heavily stylized thanks to an outstanding photography. By performing the tragedy of this betrayed woman, Von Trier later succeded in developing the characters of the heroines of his following masterpieces.
