Film: Riget

August 16th, 2008 by UFO in Culture, Denmark, EILC

In this week we saw Danish series The Kingdom (Riget) from a famous director Lars von Trier. Main storyline is about the Kingdom – most technologically advanced hospital in Denmark. After some mysterious events, such as ghost ambulance arriving to hospital every night or strange voices in elevator shaft, the medical personnel begins to realize that not everything can be comprehended purely by science.

We only saw first two episodes (out of eight), but it was enough for me to know that it is one of the best series I have ever seen.
