    @ Rikki J: He is most likely more intelligent than you'll ever be. This guy has made some brilliant movies cause he keeps challenging the way movies are mad, the fact that he fucked up during this interview doesn't prove shit – so keep your ignorant mouth shut. 😉

    • turn

      If someone saying shit like this I call him an idiot. And I don't care how many brilliant movies did he make. Deal with that!

      • detroller

        Don't you just love free speech?? Practically you can say anything, except question the holocaust or expose the Jewish banks.

        Thank goodness i couldn't care less.

        • LineHog

          Yep, your exactly right, the people that question this are the ones that will scream bloody murder if anyone questions their comments.

        • turn

          He can say anything, I can call him an idiot.

          You wouldn't comment if u couldn't care less;)

        • Muckiman

          Oh, I love freedom of speech. I really do. Freedom of speech means he can call himself a Nazi, but also that we can call him an idiot, a dimwit, a douchebag and a dickhead. If you'll notice closely, nobody said he should go to jail or be murdered for what he said, just that he's a moron. Deal with it.

          • Angry Kid

            Actually… you can't. Words which incite violence, such are defamatory remarks or "fighting" words which may incite violence are not protected by the Freedom Of Speech act. Just saying, if you're going to reference a law, you should at least know what you're talking about.

            • Charlie_Cheen

              Just so we are on the same page here, if we are talking about The USA, I assure you that it's not against the law to call an idiot an idiot.

              It's his right to destroy his carrer, and it's everyone else's right to call him an ass.

            • Jrain

              Hence him saying that nobody said he should be murdered; Kids stay in school

    • EZEE

      6 million jews…WWII…but hey! He makes good movies! Stalin – I mean, he killed 30 million of his own, but, he industrialized the Soviet Union, so he wasn't all bad…and Chairman Mao – he killed 100 million of his own people, but does that REALLY make him a bad guy? And Pol Pot – okay – he killed 1/4 of the entire population of his country, but hey – less mouths to feed!

      Yes – we have freedom of speech (wait – this is in France – do they – Canada has laws against freedom of speech, so France may as well) – but, that doesn't mean you don't have to face the societal consequences of your stupid speech.

      And, he is an idiot, simply because, everyone knows supporting Hitler in public, whether you LIKE Hitler or not, will generate a poor reaction. And, if you are a person who is marketing products, it is best to avoid associating yourself with a highly polarizing stance, hence you create poor marketing responses.

      • meep

        But thats the thing….. you cant question what we were forced fed to believe as kids in school. 6 Million Jews 100,000 EVERY FOUR DAYS" = 6 MILLION IN 8 MONTHS how much gas was there needed?? Was it even possible to even produce that much? This was for Auschwitz alone.

        In March 1991 The NewYork Times knew that this figure was just over exagerrating and now claims that the true figure of deaths in Auschwitz is 73,137.

        Which i still don't believe happened anyway.

        • Queue

          Oh… OH! You're one of THOSE guys. Ok. At least you cleared that up for us.

          "C'mon guys, the Holocaust never happened! Lolz!"

          Simply brilliant, Meep. Simply brilliant. Are you one of those people who thinks the world is only 5,000 years old, or that 9/11 was an inside job too? You might as well go full bat-shit crazy if you're jumping on the "Holocaust wasn't real" kick.

          The only thing more fucked up than the Holocaust is the fact that people believe that it was imaginary.

          • meep

            I stand corrected. No one can question the holocaust.

        • Justin Hall

          I never though I'd see the day when Holocaust deniers began posting on theChive.

          People like you are the absolute scum of the Earth.

        • Cake is a Lie

          So check it out. My grandfather was one of the first people to go into the Nazi concentration camps after WWII. He was in charge of Allied railway operations. He was there to see the horrors. The mass graves. The condition the people were forced to live and die in. He rarely talked about it, but when he did – you knew it was real. Even if it was 100,000 instead of 6 million, war crimes are war crimes and anyone sympathizing with the Nazis are a disgrace to humanity.

        • Mike

          meep you are a fuckhead.

          from Cracow, Poland (50miles from Auschwitz)

      • SoW

        in France we don't have law against freedom of speech, just laws against speech which incite racial hate. he wasn't arrest, just banish from the festival. It's his right to call himself a Nazi…

        • Proteus

          In other words, we don't have laws against freedom of speech! There are just some things you can't say without going to jail, that's all!

    • Da Sandman

      he fucked up his entire life if he sympathises with a sociopathic mass murderer like hitler…

  • LarsfromNorway

    I guess we won't be seeing much of him again…

    • mojomojo444

      Au contraire, he is an awesome director and has just increased his mainstream fame tenfold overnight

      • DrROBOTO

        but hollwood is run by jews…also a joke. (not really) 😦

        • qwertz

          But he works in European independent cinema run by nazis and paedophiles.

  • Don 3000

    made* – sorry about that one!

  • Bob

    I can't help to love this… Von Trier lives to provoke, and this is a classic (and maybe a little extreme) Von Trier moment.
    It mainly sounds as an attempt to put down the Danish director Susanne Bier (who won an oscar earlier this year) and at the same time make headlines. The nazi part is just whipped cream on top of it all

  • Muckiman

    @Don 3000: We're so sorry. From now on, we'll call him Mr. Lars Von Trier, the intelligent douchebag

  • 888

    People are taking this too siriously, he did or said nothing wrong.

    • ThatGuy

      Agreed. Saying you empathize with someone doesn't mean you support what they did.

  • DjChaos

    Wow, Lars pushing the boundaries, I did nazi that coming

    • Matt

      Anne Frankly, I'm not amused.

      • etphonehome

        What he said is filthy. I need to take a shower.

        • George Cruz

          you needed to take a shower regardless.

          • 123

            lmao…. if I could thumbs up your comment a dozen times I would. Thank you, sir.

        • ThatGuy

          You're filthy

    • Cake is a Lie

      Slow Clap for you sir

  • mark

    more of an awkward joke to me

    • Bob

      Exactly, but apparently the Cannes committee is afraid everyone will call them nazis if they let him stay

  • bbqboobs

    Holocaust jokes aren't funny you guys. My great grandfather died in a concentration camp. He got drunk and fell off a watchtower.

    • Mads

      Funniest comment of the week! 😉

      • Stef

        But seriously, holocaust jokes are wrong Anne Frankly, I won't stand for it.

        • Stef

          Ever realise you just posted something that if you'd waited a second longer you would have seen someone say exactly the same thing before you…

  • PedoB

    Holocaust jokes aren't funny, Anne Frankly I don't think we should tolerate them.

    • nastyb123

      That my sir made my day, well done old chap well done.

      • English Gentleman

        "my sir"? just stop it, you're trying too hard.

    • Plastilina_Ve


    • Jack mehoff

      Must be asshole day or something.

  • Wantedsoul

    Come on, lighten the FUCK UP!!!! A nazi joke, nothing more than that.
    I once raped, killed and devoured a Jewish boy, that doesn't make me evil either, just horny and hungry.

  • kevi

    Banned from Hollywood, LOL. Its all about money, no soul whatsoever. Cannes has soul.

    • McBeastie

      that dude never worked in Hollywood anyway, so it makes no difference. And he was banned from Cannes (sounds like a song lyric) not Hollywood.

  • Bob

    If you don't understand satire, leave the keyboard alone and run back to the hampster cage rather than comment and show your ignorance.

    When stupidity is accepted and is allowed to breed, the more diluted our societies intelegence will become.

    Hang on a minute……

    • Pufffdragon

      I would give you more thumbs up but it won't let me.
      Well said!

    • Spelling Nazi

      "intelligence" Ouch!

      Looks like we have another Nazi on TheChive.

    • greazzlybear

      I don't necessarily disagree with you, but if you're going to question others' intellect, at least spell "hamster" and "intelligence" right. Just sayin'…

      • Stevo

        Also society's or societies' (plural) but not societies.

        I sympathize with the grammar nazi, I think they do some good things, but are misunderstood.
        I think they are the internet Gods' favourite children, I don't agree with everything they do, sometimes it is the nit-picking?

        OK, I am a grammar nazi.

    • George Cruz

      I think you all suck camel dick, but let me point another thing out to you. satire is holding a mirror to the world or a group. I saw no satire here. just a guy who dropped the ball. and he said fuck it, since i dropped it, might as well go all the way.

  • Grego

    Didn't see much wrong here, he din't endorse what they did. I also liked the Israel comment. 🙂

    • honest person

      you sir, are an idiot.

  • saffer

    Lovely the PC dictatorship, on top of that Trier is half-jewish LOL

    • Jon

      So what? Hitler was half Jewish too, does that excuse being an ass?

      • Lloyd

        Are you comparing some spoken words to attempted genocide?
        I want what you're smoking.

  • yay

    Trier was never part of the hollywood, he makes indie movies, he'll be fine in the end.
    And you know, screw them, if they can't take a joke.

  • Ryan

    Regarding Holocaust and Hitler jokes, only two types of people are allowed to joke about them:

    1) Someone who has visited Auschwitz.
    2) Someone who has lost a relative in a concentration camp.

    I belong to one of those groups. When you find one of these people making jokes about it, let me know.

    • Bob

      why would visiting Auschwitz make it more okay?

      • Ryan

        That's the point. You won't find these two people cracking jokes about it.

        • Bob

          But are you arguing that people will gain and insightfulness about Holocaust superior to that of others by simply visiting Auschwitz?

          • Ryan


            • Bob

              Alright, all i needed to know

    • F.S.

      Ryan, I've been there – and to Dachau – and I understand your point completely.

    • Pete

      I've been to Auschwitz several times. I don't see why I'm allowed to make fun of Jews and others are not

      • Bob

        My pointe exactly

    • Stevo

      Here's another type of person allowed to make holocaust jokes:
      Anyone who lives in a country with the right to free speech.

      I last saw my mate Ishmael buying a lottery ticket on Wednesday night. He rang me on Thursday saying he had six million reasons not to come to work.

      It was Holocaust Remembrance Day.

      Deal with it

    • HitlerBangedYourGram

      I'll be sure to let you know…you Yenta cunt…

    • ThatGuy

      Who died and mad you joke police?

  • mso4ivp

    Just because someone pushes the boundaries or tries to make shocking comments does not make them intelligent.

    • Manne

      No, but making a movie like Antichrist makes you pretty fucking awesome(and probably more intelligent than the monkeys at Cannes… and you…. and me.)!


    ….hhmm….hopefully he didnt enjoy his carreer too much eh?

  • friendly joe

    I thumbed you up!
    but I guess for some once theyre the victim of the just an unhurtful joke it wont be as funny and youll be thumbed down

  • youknowitstrue

    Made me laugh. Jews need to lighten up, they are not the only race who has suffered a genocide. They are the only race to profit from it though.

    • Plastilina_Ve

      You've got it right brother!

  • P90

    Thay are not a race either.

    • V4Vendetta14

      I grew up with lots of Jewish kids who claimed "Jewish" was their ethnicity… And they all thought Israel was the greatest country on earth…though most had never been there…

    • b.o.l

      you can be ethnically jewish or religiously jewish. There are no such things as races anyways. Theyre ethnicities. Human is a race

  • Birdhaus32

    I think that guy is too German to make a Nazi joke. He tried to be funny but couldn't quite put it all together. He's a bit special

    • V4Vendetta14

      Germans are well known for their lighthearted humor. This guy is Danish, i think…

  • Eric Mongrain

    i don't think he ever worked in hollywood, and he never wanted to work in hollywood. his philosophy of filmmaking is too different.

    • Bob

      Also he's afraid of flying and have yet to visit the states. Most his film are shot in germany or sweden
