Tout envoyer valser ? Sa si faible confiance en elle s'évapore. Les fantômes du devoir, du jugement social, de l'ordre familial se liguent pour l'empêcher de vivre, d'aimer, et de penser, d'être tout simplement elle-même." (Source : jaquette)
Europa by Lars von Trier( Visual )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You will now listen to my voice ... On the count of ten you will be in Europa ... So begins Max von Sydow's opening narration to Lars von Trier's hypnotic Europa (known in the U.S. as Zentropa), a fever dream in which American pacifist Leopold Kessler (Jean-Marc Barr) stumbles into a job as a sleeping-car conductor for the Zentropa railways in a Kafkaesque 1945 postwar Frankfurt. With its gorgeous black-and-white and color imagery and meticulously recreated (if then nightmarishly deconstructed) costumes and sets, Europa is one of the great Danish filmmaker's weirdest and most wonderful works, a runaway-train ride to an oddly futuristic past
