Trailerama: Det rode kapel (The Red Chapel)

The enticing premise of this documentary is that a Korean-born, Denmark-based comic duo have gotten permission to perform in North Korea. Intrigued, director Mads Brugger decides to go along for the ride. He’s smart enough to bring his camera. This is no diplomatic cultural exchange, though. Simon Jul Jorgensen and Jacob Nossell intend on criticizing the regime in the form of their vaudeville revue. Oh, and Jacob is a spastic. So far, so fascinating. Maybe even a little improbable. Then we saw that it’s produced by spazz-loving Lars von Trier’s Zentropa studio. Knowing what a prankster von Trier is, can any of this be believed? Judge for yourselves.
