Youth in Action #2

Befrielsesbilleder (Lars von Trier, 1982)

[Remember the online hubbub around the premiere of Antichrist, because von Trier had dedicated the film to Tarkovsky? I think he meant it very seriously. After all, von Trier started as the world's greatest Andrei Tarkovsky imitator. Few forgeries have been as thorough as the green-tinted final section of Befrielsesbilleder (also known as Images of Liberation), a 51-minute film set during World War II that von Trier made in 1982. Only The Key to Reserva goes further.]
