The House That Jack Built

by Lars von Trier Special Screenings

Jack has a somewhat unconventional passion: as a highly intelligent serial killer, murder is his craft. With meticulous planning and amazing ingenuity he engages with his morbid passion. Both women and children fall victim to Jack’s ruthlessness. To make matters worse, he also seems to have luck on his side; his series of murders, beginning in the US provinces of the 1970s, remain undisturbed by the authorities for decades. Over time, both Jack's self-confidence and negligence increase along with the risks he takes to achieve the perfect murder. Director Lars von Trier underlines his reputation as the enfant terrible of cinema with a disturbing yet inspiring shocker about the power of evil.
