Lars Von Trier has certainly made an interesting career for himself, crafting such films as “Dogville” and “Dancer in the Dark,” but he claims he is fighting a battle with depression.

Remember how depressing “Breaking the Waves” and “Dancer in the Dark” actually were? Perhaps Von Trier needs to direct a lighthearted comedy to get his mind of things… or maybe even a children’s film. Nothing brings smiles like a nice children’s film.
