Each of the leading film is meticulously disguised, which leads to two paths: Lars wanted to communicate something through acts appar... read more

" Notes: Even though I have the highest respect for Lars von Trier's work and I think he is truly an artist, I have to confess, I’m not a huge fan and this movie was a perfect example explaining why.
