Top Customer Reviews
-Complex, addictive storyline
-Directed by one of the maverick masters of independent cinema
-Darkly funny and, when it comes down to it, not really scary most of the time
-Trademark cinematography - grainy and sepia Handycam effects
-Incomplete - this ends after 2 of what should have been 3 or 4 series
The last point sounds off-putting, but I haven't met anyone who hasn't thoroughly enjoyed this. When this was filmed, Lars von Trier was famous only in his native Denmark. The camerawork is a lot more easily digestible than in some of his later works, and his typical broodiness is balanced by dark Scandinavian humour - totally addictive.
