More Dogme delights, perhaps?

I do not subscribe to ScreenDaily.com, but I do subscribe to their newsletter, so while I cannot access or quote the content of this article, I can quote the summary from the newsletter:

VON TRIER, SCHERFIG TEAM FOR ERIK NIETZSCHE
Lone Scherfig is set to direct semi-autobiographical script written by Lars von Trier.

Scherfig was, I believe, the first woman to direct a Dogme95 film — said film being Italian for Beginners (alas, my review does not appear to be online) — and she went on direct Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself (my film-fest blurb). And Trier, of course, is the notorious bad boy of Danish cinema who oversaw the Dogme95 campaign and happens to have made some interesting films, the merits of which cinephiles debate rather intensely. FWIW, searches for “erik nietzsche” and the like turn up a lot of foreign websites but nothing, so far that I can see, in English. So if anyone hears any more info on this film, by all means feel free to post it here.

  • Continuing with my comment-theme for today — fear and trembling — let me just say that the words “film,” “Lars Von Trier,” and “autobiographical” are a very scary combination indeed.
