Von Trier steals from the best -
barryneuman29 April 2004
Von Triers graduation film is the work of a young director with a vision and a firm grip of his medium. Even though every other scene (or individual shot for that matter) has been lifted from Tarkovsky's films or Bertolucci's "The Conformist" the film has a gripping mood and qualities that cannot be ignored - the lesson of this must be: if you steal, steal from the best. Von Trier would later develop this style into his fascinating and original "Europa", before he with "Breaking the Waves" abandoned all this for Cassavettes style hand held camera and more conventional, naturalistic performances. A pity.
