Take Hitchcock. Add David Lynch. Mix with a kilogram of steroids on Waipurgis Night. You have something like Lars Von Trier, bad boy of Danish cinema, "Whose ZENTROPA mesmerizes the audience into a surreal shadow" land of postwar Germany. Leo, an idealistic young American, takes a job as porter on board the mighty Zentropa railway. The hero ?wants only to heal a shattered society; his native neutrality makes him a partner" in a deadly game between underground Nazi terrorists and ruthless Allied invaders. and his refusal to take sides brings calamity. A dazzling, darkly humorous thriller, combining black-and-white with color images and an adroit mixture of English and (subtitled) German dialogue. Narrated by Max Von Sydow, with a memorable cameo by Von Trier himself.
