Jack, a serial killer nicknamed Mister Sophistication, looks back on 12 years of murder through five key moments as he confides to Verge. But this confession shows little remorse.

A new provocation by Dane Lars von Trier, who questions and tests the limits of the representation of horror and gives Matt Dillon (Sexcrimes, Rusty James, There's Something About Mary) his greatest role. This new chilling bravado from the author of Melancholia and Antichrist frontally addresses his detractors and does not disappoint his fans. One thing is certain, once again this filmmaker leaves no one indifferent.
