Y Lars von Trier returned to the Cannes festival, Expelled after a turbulent press conference in 2011, the Danish director returned last May to the French contest with Jack's house, the journey through 12 years of the macabre adventures of Jack (Matt Dillon), a serial killer that Von Trier decides not to praise or extol but to x-ray. And in a masterly way, getting to turn that Jack into his own alter ego, which the character of Bruno Ganz submits to an incisive interrogation. Jack's house, which opens on January 25, had an excellent reception at the Sitges festival, where they applauded the film of a creator that is defined as follows: "I am an artist and therefore a provocateur",
On his character, Von Trier said in France: "The protagonist is a psychokiller, so whatever I do will be bad. It surprises me how people and the media fall in love with those characters. I know psychopaths better, people who only feel guilty for breaking their own rules and who tend to destroy their abilities. I assure you that the script was more fun than what you see on the screen. "Before its commercial premiere, we offer you part of the sequence shared by Dillon and Uma Thurman, one of the unfortunate women who cross paths with Jack.
