I only need to tell myself it's all going to be allright.

I just want everyone to be allright.

But people cannot be allright

whilst making a film, thats impossible.


What if it turns out to be sh*t?!

Sixteen actors, one stage and 6 maal (unit of area)

and that's all.

Every film is a moonlanding, right.

And where the film is at right now is like we have just landed on the moon.

[various tech. smalltalk]

I'm still without my shoes.

It only works in wide shots

down from one end of the stage,

shot in silhouette it works just fine.

But this does'nt work at all when were at the edges.

Sh*t! Piss!

What really annoys me

is to wear all that stuff all the time.

In my head, the idea made sense,

but at some point you go.

Imagine having 20 people under your command constantly.

She's this princess character, right.

She goes out in real life and gets in really big trouble.

Values, people, nature and everything

don't act like they should.

Lars von Trier.

He's a con man, 'cause he isn't called "von".

[last words cant make out]

It's just an affectation,

and that's the lowest thing imaginable.

It's like claiming (adel=royalty?).

It's so low, so low,

claiming to be someone else

than who you really are.

Is it big problems?

Easy now!


Yeah, we just needed some tools?

OK. We wait.

There now, there now!

Do you feel how warm your hands are?

Yeah, but I'm feverish,

I've got a fever!

All this privatisation...

thats a bit difficult

- Is it?

- as soon as it works everthing is better.

Be a good girl now, and go back in your place.

Thank you.

There's so many people here!

Get out, please.

Oh, shut up!

Now? Now I'm allright.

You have to raise you hand and say:

"Dear Ms. Bacall, I would like to take a sh*t."

And there's something about that I don't like.

I would like to feel some sort of control

of my bodily functions.

If you feel like this conversation is

turning somewhat manic, you're right,

because the day is over and just one more day

till a three day weekend. Then we can relax.

Oh, shut up!

Lars von Trier

is a poor man trapped in his own game.

He's got lots of ambition,

lots of "this is how its gonna be" and

"now we all play my game" and all that.

The problem is every morning he needs to be ready with some new stuff.

"What are we gonna do now?" etc.

He's bombarded...

I'm afraind next important scene with him

we get the same kind of problem, I'm sure of that.

The attitude that's displayed at the moment is like

"I'm too smart", thats how I see it from my camera.

It's almost like...


I'm so tired. Time to rape a girl. Yawn.

I just got thrown out of her trailer...

She was about to change clothes, to make it extra risque.

It's just that, just when you say it,

when I'm in there, you say "body", "f*** no".

Then I do it, then you say:

"Body, that's a good idea".

I'm with you.

- No!

- Yes!

- No!

- Yes!

You're not gonna keep your eye

on where the camera is.

I KNOW where the camera is.

But you're not supposed to.

Yes, I am.

No, you're not.

I told him:
when I read one of your scripts

I see a hyperintelligent child

that's easely scared,

that's playing with dolls in a dollhouse,

and with a pair of scissors cuts their heads off.

And I think he would partly agree to that image.

Move those flowers!

critical for this film I admit...

I can't work it out, tell me again.

There's nobody that

loves me enough to tell me:

"Stop this, don't jump without

a parachute like this."

There's nobody that loves me enough,

they just say:
"Go ahead."

It's actually a bit hard.
