Understanding the movies Von Trier sets out to make, and what he means to communicate, sometimes means knowing a bit about the man himself, and even his earliest works showed signs of what was to come. The wonders of the internet have made a very early Lars Von Trier short film, "En Blomst," available for your eyes. The 1971 film, shot by the then 15-year-old director who was going as Lars Trier, shows signs of the sensibility for a bit of shock that he would develop later on. The music choices and even the "plot" all seem like ingredients he would use in later efforts, but mostly, this seven-minute movie is a nice peek of a director developing his skills. Give it a whirl below.
