Fucked up, disturbing, deeply affecting, verbally & visually highly articulate. Also, packed with humour. The fairy-tale-like narrative is well crafted and feels old school. Von Trier at his best, if you ask me.
Sidenote: the scene when Joe & Jerome’s young son ventures out on to the balcony to the sound of Handel’s aria is an eerie clin d’oeil to Antichrist.
