This post contains spoilers for Midsommar.
The most insane scene arrives near the end, when Christian (a fearless Jack Reynor) submits himself to a ritualistic sexual ceremony with Maja (Isabelle Grill), a girl who magicked him into falling in love with her while Midsommar is a freak buffet of gloriously disturbing moments. It’s, also by writer-director Ari Aster’s standards, a breathtakingly crazy scene.
Christian, that has invested the moments prior to this ceremony tripping on an herbaceous, psychoactive beverage, stumbles their means in to the space. Maja will there be waiting around for him, completely nude, enclosed by nude ladies through the commune. She’s spent the previous few times attempting to make Christian fall deeply in love with her with all sorts of crazy tricks (including, although not restricted to, baking a pie along with her pubic hairs in it, which a naive christian later consumes). Now interested in her, Christian strips down and starts the ceremony. But because it continues he understands that the ladies around Maja are pressing by themselves and mimicking Maja’s every noise. One girl also gets near, grasping Christian’s face inside her fingers whilst the deed gets done. It’s incredibly creepy, but additionally hilarious in its strangeness; Midsommar is, regarding the entire, filled with these so-crazy-they’re-funny moments, but this scene is without question house towards the many mirth that is unintentional.
