Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Regarded as one of the great auteurs of modern cinema, Lars Von Trier's reputation as a ground-breaking and highly disciplined director is built on controversial and experimental films, such as The Idiots, Dancer In The Park, and Dogville. However, he shaped his distinctive style with three early projects, collectively known as the e-Trilogy - Element of Crime, the never previously released Epidemic, and Europa all of which deal with the complex nature of identity.

Element Of Crime: Von Trier's visually arresting debut sees a police detective, named Fisher (played by Michael Elphick), attempting to solve a series of grisly crimes using brutal and unconventional means. Awash with cinematic allusions, the film offers a foretaste of the fledgling director's later works.

Epidemic: Previously unreleased in the UK, this brilliant and experimental film prefigures the director's later works, The Idiots and Dogville. Starring the director in the lead and filmed without a conventional camera crew, the story concerns itself with a doctor attempting to stop the spread of a plague but only making matters worse.

Europa: In post WWII Germany, an idealistic young American of German descent (Jean-Marc Barr) tries to help rebuild a damaged country. Soon, however, emotions and conflicting political interests force him to make some difficult decisions. Stylishly realised in stunning black and white, this modern expressionist drama brought its director huge critical acclaim.
