In Lars von Trier's follow up to 'Breaking The Waves', a bunch of 'idiots' run a little bit amok in their village, get thrown out of tea-rooms, make whoopee at the swimming baths and disrupt board meetings. But these misfits are as sane as you or I, with a simple aim to test society's attitudes to the disabled. Appreciation naturally conquers enjoyment but 'The Idiots' is a challenge well worth taking up.
