Scraping past the BBTF board by the skin of its teeth thanks to its notorious yet brief orgy scene, "The Idiots" picked up quite a bit of hype. It took the Cannes Film Festival by storm and shocked, disgusted and largely entertained audiences ever since. The plot centres around a group of friends who decide to explore their 'inner idiot' potential. As the characters throw morals aside, the film looks at the subversive effect on the society. Made under the Dogma 95 Manifesto created by 'Breaking The Waves' director Lars von Trier, the cinematography tricks are kept secret ('Festen' was made the same way). Stunning, consistently intriguing, quite unlike anything else and, therefore, highly recommended film.
