While filming this minimalist epic, Lars von Trier claimed to be in psychic communication with the late Carl Theodor Dreyer (
The Passion of Joan of Arc
), on whose screenplay the film is based. This brilliantly original exploration of the dark passions of a woman scorned unfolds in shimmering North Sea marshlands and gloomy subterranean passageways. Shot on video for Danish television, von Trier's
is a haunting work of mythic realism, using available light and digital cameras to achieve a purposefully washed out, grainy aesthetic. "Exhilarating" (
). Loosely adapted from the play by Euripides. Udo Kier and Kirsten Olesen star. In Danish with English subtitles.
