Morten Arnfred and Lars von Trier's second chapter in the ongoing Danish television series The Kingdom chronicles the further misadventures of the staff and patients of an ultramodern Copenhagen hospital located atop an ancient, haunted swamp. The film opens with Judith (Birgitte Raaberg) giving birth to her mutant child (Udo Kier). Dr. Stig Helmer (Ernst-Hugo Järegård) is coming under heavy scrutiny for a botched operation that left a patient brain dead, and beginning to dabble in the dark arts in order to ward off those seeking an end to his career. Hypochondriac Mrs. Drusse (Kirsten Rolffes) finally does have something bad happen to her medically when an ambulance hits her. This is supposedly the second of a planned three-part story. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

better than Riget I? almost... by perzikje July 26, 2004 - 5:21 PM PDT

for the show: continues all your favourite characters (my personal favourite being Helmer), and even introduces a couple of new characters. Riget II seems to be more fast-paced and even more hilarious than the first dose given by Riget I. definitely won't feel like you've wasted 4.3 hours.

my only problems would be with the DVD itself, having numerous typing errors in the english subtitles. however, that's tolerable as Riget II is quite hard to find...
