LIBERATION. WHETHER THEY WANT IT OR NOT.

manderlayAfter leaving Dogville, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) passes a Southern plantation where the owner still keeps slaves and decides to teach everyone there a lesson about democracy. Director Lars Von Trier’s sequel to Dogville (2003) uses the same theatrical set-up and once again his cinematographer employs effective visual tricks. However, Howard is less than engaging a lead, the movie is outright boring and the director’s criticism of the U.S. predictable, simplistic and smug.

2005-Denmark-Sweden-The Netherlands-France-Germany-Britain. 139 min. Color. Widescreen.¬†Written and directed by¬†Lars Von Trier.¬†Cinematography:¬†Anthony Dod Mantle.¬†Cast:¬†Bryce Dallas Howard (Grace Mulligan), Isaach de Bankol√© (Timothy), Danny Glover (Wilhelm), Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Davies, Lauren Bacall‚Ķ Chlo√ę Sevigny, Udo Kier.¬†Narrated by¬†John Hurt.

Trivia: Nicole Kidman and James Caan originally intended to repeat their roles from Dogville, but dropped out. John C. Reilly was also originally cast, but left the production when a donkey was killed for a scene.
