The Kingdom II

It's back to our favourite Copenhagen hospital for another four episodes (with more to come!) of von Trier's surreal soap about medical corruption and monstrous apparitions. No recaps are supplied (some homework is necessary for the uninitiated) while further layers of plot build up with less tension and more extravagant fantasy. Little of this should be revealed in advance - be warned, however, that the emerging baby sporting Udo Kier's head was no bad dream, but a living creature who refuses to stop growing.
