It took me forever to find this film as I live in America. What interested me most was Von Trier's blunt honesty through his little diary recorder. The relationship he has with Anne Louise Hassing is probably the most interesting dimension. The film (and shooting of the film of The Idiots) starts off with him lavishing her with praise, and even confessing to a certain crush he has on her in his diary.
Throughout the film though this slowly turns to hostility to her, with him confessing through his voice over narration at one point "enough of this touchy feely stuff" or something like that. Near the end he feels that Anne is delivering a poor performance, and it becomes grueling.
This is a companion piece to the Idiots, and I strongly suggest that you see the Idiots first. Its a great strange documentary that could only come out of wonderful Denmark.
