The Five Obstructions . 2003 . Lars von Trier . Jørgen Let
The premise is that Lars von Trier has created a challenge for his friend and mentor, Jørgen Leth, another filmmaker. Von Trier's favourite film is Leth's The Perfect Human (1967). Von Trier gives Leth the task of remaking The Perfect Human five times, each time with a different 'obstruction' (or obstacle) given by von Trier.

The Perfect Human . 1967 . Jørgen Leth . Claus Nissen . Majken Algren Nielsen
The Perfect Human (Danish: Det perfekte menneske) is a 1967 short film by Jørgen Leth lasting 13 minutes. It depicts a man and a woman, both labelled 'the perfect human' in a detached manner, "functioning" in a white boundless room, as though they were subjects in a zoo.
007ad 2.1.3
Leth is not sincerely pleased with any of the resulting films. Leth's original is the most exquisite, ideal work. There is nothing that Von Trier has made, not even The 5 Obstructions, that compares to the precision of The Perfect Human. But Von Trier continually addresses that the goal of the creator is to go "from perfect to human," implying that to make something perfect is only part of the project. Modernism revealed that perfection was not the final answer or the ultimate future. To allow the perfection to become weathered, occupied, aged, transformed or destroyed is to allow it to interact with reality, to be in dialogue with the human and to go beyond the perfect vision. Post-modernism is a moment of letting the perfect go. From perfect to human locates the next step already in progress.
