Lars von Trier

He’s very honest and he’s not false. He has the courage to be genuine. And he doesn’t compromise when it comes to emotions. When other people constricts their most extreme feelings, he dares to let them loose. He’s magic. When I saw "Breaking The Waves" I almost regarded it as physically violent. The emotions were so strong. I ran around in my house during the whole film. I couldn’t sit still, and that has never happened to me before when watching a movie. Afterwards I just felt like celebrating that there were other people with feelings as strong as mine, people who were like me. We’re hiding feelings to much in this world.
