A group of perfectly intelligent young people decide to react to society's cult of aimless, non-creative and non-responsible form intellect by living together in a community of "idiots". Their main activity becomes going out into the world of "normal" people and pretending to be mentally retarded. They take advantage of this situation to create anarchy everywhere they go and try by every possible means to make people annoyed, disturbed, miserable, ridiculous, angered, and shocked. The film starts as they recruit a new lost soul and introduce her to their megalomaniac leader.Written by

This is a film that adheres to the 'Dogme 95' manifesto, so the usual goof rules do not necessarily apply. This includes shots of the crew, microphones and other equipment, as well as continuity errors. See more »

The Australian version is missing about two seconds of sexual penetration footage, during the orgy scene. This was removed to avoid an 'X' rating, thus ensuring a more marketable 'R' rating. See more »
Although this is the second 'Dogme' film, this was the first that I saw. It began rather unsettlingly in a restaurant and from there the entertainment only went up, as the group of 'Idiots' became more in touch with their inner selves. Showing themselves to be as vulnerable as the rest of the human race rather than special observers which they pretended to be brought them to the point of breakdown. Karen, who wasn't part of the insular group to begin with, gets taken along as things escalate, is shown to be a genuinely tragic figure. This film is definitely worth seeing.
