The Five Obstructions

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 31 min.

Plot Summary
In 1967, experimental filmmaker Jorgen Leth created a striking short film, "The Perfect Human," starring a man and women sitting in a box while a narrator poses questions about their relationship and humanity. Years later, Danish director Lars von Trier made a deal with Leth to remake the film five times, each under a different set of circumstances and with von Trier's strictly prescribed rules. As Leth completes each challenge, von Trier creates ever more elaborate rules for the contest.

    A few parts are well done but the film is largely pseudo-intellectual nonsense. Way over-rated.
