"...Kept afloat by von Trier's extraordinary visual flair..."
An inspector is called to find the killer of several little girls who sell Lotto tickets, using his former mentor's method of taking the killer's point of view. After meeting a mysterious woman and using a potential new victim as bait, the vicious killer is shockingly exposed. Lars von Trier's first English-language film is a stylish, eerie mood piece that confirms his place at the forefront of modern filmmakers.
