The dark 1996 film, Breaking the Waves distills the artistry of its creator, Danish filmmaker Lars Von Trier, more than any other of his films. This progressively warped and partially improvised drama, bound within remarkably cogent chapter breaks, strikes emotional depths, and is a unique example of a film with the ability to restore one’s faith in the art.

Joining me on this episode is film professor David Klieler and our guest Kaj Wilson—a board member and former Artistic Director of the Boston Jewish film Festival, a film critic for WBUR, and a former film editor for the Improper Bostonian.
