Lars von Trier now enters the world of documentary filmmaking alongside his idol, Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth. In 1967, Leth made a 12 minute feature film called The Perfect Human. In the year 2000, von Trier challenged Jorgen Leth to remake his film five times, each time with a new obstruction to force Leth to rethink the story and characters of the original film. Lars von Trier sets a game in motion that is full of traps and vicious turns hoping each time Leth will fail but it turns out to have a surprising outcome.

Artsy, documentary, experimental, pretentious....These are the few adjectives that came to mind as I finished watching this film. I kind of forced myself to finish it because of Lars Von Trier's involvement. But in the end I was not entertained by it. For example, the phrase 'the perfect human', and other similar terms, were used over and over again in the most meaningless fashion. This film is only for hardcore art-house film fans and film students only. If you are not one, don't waste your time.
