Lars Von Trier is well known as a very poor speaker, letting his mouth run , without any kind of filter - what so ever. Having heard the speech I believe it is rather obvious that he is trying to implement irony and sarcasms. But as usually he does it poorly - even worse as he struggles with the English language. It is not a matter that ought to be taken up seriously - I believe it falls well within the limits of the usual rubbish we do expect from controversial artist , such as Trier. Very stupid words indeed from the mouth of Lars Trier - but 80% of what we hear from this otherwise excellent instructor - are of such character.... The reaction by the Board of Cannes does most certainly appear as an overreaction.
