Film-maker Lars von Trier apologises for Hitler remarks
Danish director Lars von Trier apologised on Wednesday for remarking at the Cannes film festival that he sympathised "a little bit" with Adolf Hitler.
"If I have hurt someone this morning by the words I said at the press conference, I sincerely apologize," he said in an email sent to AFP by Meta Louise Foldager, a producer of his latest film "Melancholia".
"I am not anti-Semitic or racially prejudiced in any way, nor am I a Nazi."
