As we mentioned before, the film was directed by Lars von Trier, and the film itself stars Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, and Uma Thurman. Called "tortuous", "vile", and "one of the most unpleasant movie-going experiences of my life", it's believed that an estimated half of those in attendance at the 2,400-seat Grand Théâtre Lumière, headed for the exits prematurely.
It was reported that 100 people walked out out during the screening at the Grand Theatre Lumiere on Monday night, which made von Trier "very relaxed".
"Yeah. Because, you know, if you stand up and walk out then you have had a thought process before for a long time you think, "I'm not gonna stand for this" or 'I can't take this, ' or whatever". "As someone sitting near me put it: 'They'll clap for anything'". If it gets too popular, I'll have a problem. "But the reception seemed just about right".
The 62-year-old continued: 'In any case, this one was a pleasure to write.

"I've never seen anything like this at a film festival", Variety's Ramin Setoodeh tweeted. If I do, it will probably be a journalist.
Nevertheless, the movie still received a prolonged standing ovation for von Trier, who is a regarded as a cinematic visionary in France. Von Trier said he "felt welcome" when he arrived to Cannes 2018. It's also a bit nice being out of competition. Thierry Frémaux has been working hard for me - for some reason, it was difficult to remove the persona non grata thing, very difficult. Anyone else would pick up their five awards and then stop, but I've been back again and again, for nothing.
Initially, the Director planned to shoot a TV series, but later "the House that Jack built" turned into a feature film. I hope that shooting will become more pleasant...
