Synopsis

Highly stylised debut feature from acclaimed director Lars von Trier ('The Idiots', 'Dancer in the Dark'). Returning from exile in Egypt, police detective Leopold Fisher (Michael Elphick) is asked to investigate a series of murders in which the victims have all been young female ticket sellers. Fisher's approach is to try to adopt the perspective of the killer, and thus to predict where and when the next murder will take place; but when he meets the beautiful Kim (Me Me Lei), the line separating investigation and crime begins to blur.
