The Kingdom II

Lars von Trier, Morten Arnfred, Denmark, 1997

286 min.DK/Feature

At the Kingdom Hospital in Copenhagen, everything is as it was - and nothing is. Consultant neurosurgeon Stig Helmer has returned from Haiti, and immediately runs into problems. He faces prosecution for his unsuccesful operation on poor little brain-damaged Mona, and his colleague Rigmor is hell-bent on enticing him into matrimony. Judith's baby, Little Brother, is growing at amazing pace and fighting for his life, just like professor Bondo who has a cancer implant.
