Leth intimates that von Trier fails, because he does in fact realize that he is merely an "abject, human human."
This movie is not ABOUT the abject experiment of recreating a short film under different circumstances (or "obstructions") by a great director.
He knows how he wants the scene to play out, and unless it works just as much as it did in his mind, he will not be happy.
Jorgen Leth and Lars von Trier are excellent film makers, excellent content. I would highly recommend viewing this film. CheersPublished 11 months ago by fresh nancy
