Lars Von Trier Takes Back Apology For Nazi and Hitler Comments
1:26 pm, September 22nd, 2011
You read that correctly.
In fact, he’s “not sorry” at all for his controversial comments, which led to him being banned from the festival.
The director tells the October issue of GQ, “To say I’m sorry for what I said is to say I’m sorry for what kind of a person I am, I’m sorry for my morals, and that would destroy me as a person. It’s not true. I’m not sorry. I am not sorry for what I said.”
He added, “I’m sorry that it didn’t come out more clearly. I’m not sorry that I made a joke, but I’m sorry that I didn’t make it clear that it was a joke. But I can’t be sorry for what I said — it’s against my nature.”
When Trier made his Nazi “joke” at the Cannes Film Festival, one could see in the video (below) that his Melancholia star Kirsten Dunst was increasing uncomfortable and mortified.
What do you think about Von Trier retracting his apology?
