Never one to deal in the commonplace, Lars von Trier cooks up perhaps his most eccentric offering yet, exploring notions of normalcy, constraining behavioral codes and conditioned emotional responses in "The Idiots. By David Rooney. But while his name will ensure the release is seen in most territories, the obscure central thesis and raw approach likely will confine it to the extreme high end of the arthouse market. Two guys unnerve the waiter and patrons of a classy restaurant to avoid the check. During the charade, Stoffer becomes attached to lost-looking, lone diner Karen Bodil Jorgensen, who vaguely resembles Emily Watson. Karen casually drifts into the group and, despite her aura of sadness, soon begins to appreciate the therapeutic release of their games.
The second of the controversial Dogma 95 films. Set in present-day Denmark, it begins with a chance encounter between the timid Karen and a group of drop-outs engaged in a strange, informal experiment where they pretend to be mentally disabled. Initially shocked, Karen finds herself compelled to stay and eventually joins them in the experiment. However, as the group's acts of 'idiocy' grow more extreme, and the reality of the outside world becomes more intrusive, the border between liberation and self-destruction begins to blur.
