  • Dansk

Et innblikk i filmskaping når filmskaperen Jørgen Leth lager, ikke bare en, men fem nyinnspillinger av hans egen kortfilm fra 1967, The Perfect Human, hver gang med nye retningslinjer og begrensninger gitt til han fra regissøren Lars von Trier.

Vår mening

Lars von Trier, will you ever stop provoking people? Here’s a movie about his provocations: the Nymphomaniac director challenges a hero of his and great Danish director to remake his own movie under the maniacal guidelines set down by von Trier. Can he do it? Or with both filmmakers go insane?

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

The movie itself is simple yet novel – and paradoxically involving for what is, essentially, an exercise in conceptual art.

This divertissement is probably more fun if you haven’t seen many experimental films — if, for instance, you haven’t already seen a film cut as rapidly as 12 frames per shot. And if you’re titillated by the idea of feasting in front of hungry nonwhite people. In short, it’s amusing only if you agree not to think very much about it.

In the film’s final sequence and ultimate obstruction, the opposite roles the two melancholy Danes have played throughout… collapse into one as von Trier attempts a last gambit to skewer Leth’s cautious nature and ends up exposing his own vulnerability instead. “Look how he falls. This is how he falls,” the narration from The Perfect Humanintones, but just who is falling, has fallen, is the riddle with which this suddenly sad, inexplicably moving film leaves us.
