Lars Von Trier is considered one of world cinema's great auteurs. His reputation has been built upon controversial and experimental films such as The Idiots, Dancer In The Dark and Dogville, that often divide audiences. However, he found his own unique voice with three early projects which have come to be known as the E-Trilogy: Element of Crime, Epidemic and Europa - all dramas concerned with the nature of identity.
Element Of Crime (1984): Widescreen 1.85:1 Anamorphic
This visually stunning debut sees a police detective, Fisher (played by Michael Elphick), attempting to solve a series of grisly crimes by becoming the killer himself. Awash with cinematic allusions, it's a foretaste of what the
fledgling director would become.
Epidemic (1988): Widescreen 1.63:1 Anamorphic / Black And White
Previously unreleased in the UK, this is a truly experimental film with echoes of the director's later films; The Idiots and Dogville. Starring the director as the lead and using no camera crew, the story follows a doctor attempting to stop the spread of a plague who only succeeds in spreading it further.
Europa (1991): Widescreen 2.35:1 Anamorphic
Set in Germany after the Second World War, this drama follows an idealistic young American of German descent (Jean-Marc Barr) as he tries to help re-build a damaged country, by working on the railways, whilst remaining neutral to the conflicting forces therein. To complicate matters, he falls in love with his employer's daughter and soon realises that he will have to make some difficult choices.
