MUBI's take

The owls are not what they seem in this episode, as von Trier is reunited with one of his former stars, here playing a shape-shifting emissary of Satan. His is an infernal introduction, but the best is saved for Alexander Skarsgård, as the Swedish lawyer who has inherited his dad’s porcelain throne.
