Synopsis

After witnessing Moesgaard’s shocking tour of the hospital, the director orders the secret Brotherhood to investigate the hospital’s problems. A sudden accident sends the reluctantly discharged Drusse back to the neurosurgery ward. Despite a difficult birth, Judith prepares to meet her newborn son.

MUBI's take

Picking up in the immediate aftermath of the first season’s startling cliffhanger, The Kingdom II sees the troubled hospital plagued by the rise of a greater evil. Masterfully harmonizing mordant humor and poignant pathos, Lars von Trier’s TV phenomenon scales new heights of white-knuckle suspense.
