When we try to get the red line out of the series of movies Lars van Trier has made, it looks like he has some Agressive Style-ish sadistic traits. The movie seems to torture the Maria Magdalena-like tragic characters until they break. Perhaps for sadists sadistic fantasy can be a good substitute when reality doesn't allow the person to do or see the real thing?


>> Dogville (2003): city of humiliations of woman (played by Nicole Kidman) in desperate situation. The people take advantage of her.

>> Europa: the voice-over is very dominant and forcing us into a thinking mode ' You are NOW in Europe'

>> Breaking the Waves: Emily Watson lets herself be abused by lots of men- withhout-conscience

>> Dancer in the dark: Bjork works herself almost to death to make a living for her and her little son, after which a conscience-less neighbour steals her money
