    brew of interweaving storylines, conspiracy
    theories and paranoiac visions…Makes
    David Lynch seem prim"

    'Easily ranks with von Trier's best work'


    Groundbreaking director Lars Von Trier's critically acclaimed TV series The Kingdom made a huge impact when it first aired and quickly achieved cult status and its reputation continues to grow.

    Now for the first time ever in the UK comes the full-length original broadcast version of The Kingdom Series I and II, which will be released as a stunning four-DVD collectors set complete with a slew of fantastic bonus features courtesy of Second Sight on 4 July 2011.

    Within the walls and labyrinthine corridors of a Danish hospital otherworldly events are unfolding. The ghost of a young girl haunts the lift, a phantom ambulance appears each evening and the eccentric staff are preoccupied with secret societies, malpractice cases and a pregnancy that has taken a frighteningly bizarre turn. Amid the unfolding drama,spirits and demons have been awakened. Welcome to The Kingdom.

    Described by Variety as 'a lunatic, Twin Peaks-like meld of black-comedy', The Kingdom  is Von Trier at his most outlandish and compelling, a must-see.
