the story is about a girl who wants to become one of the citizens of Dogville, but first she has to prove herself in the eyes of the other citizens!
after i saw ˝dancer in the dark˝ i began to catch up with Von
trier's work, and Dogville was the last Von Trier's movie on my list.
it begins by introducing the town citizens, they live in a small town
called Dogville and just love their peaceful lives, up until Grace
(Nicole Kidman) comes to the town, that's when the actual story begins.
at first she's doing little jobs for the citizens, by doing that she
hope's to make a good impression on them, so they will allow her to
stay and become one of them, but after a while she's forced to do more
and more little jobs for them, in the mean while she falls in love with
a town citizen called Tom, an he's in love with her to, together they
plan an escape from the town because they just ca't stand it
anymore..but will they succeed? i'm not going to tell you the rest of
the movie, i'm leaving that pleasure up to you..
Von Trier's great camera work is great, i love his work!
it's a great movie, really it blow me away, from the begging till the
end (personaly i find the and the best part of the movie). i strongly
recommend this movie!.

A new girl arrives in town, where nothing is the way it seems. Sure, the village looks like a stage with poor properties, but who is a better actor - the seemingly helpless victim Grace or the overprotective villagers?.

Decent and Thought-Provoking although slightly Irritating
One has to admire Lars Von Trier for taking risks with his work. Anyone can
make a crowd pleaser like Jerry Bruckheimer, but that wasn't even von
Trier's intention with Dogville. One can tell that this movie was made more
as a statement than as entertainment. It falls into a genre all its own.
People have said that the movie is insulting, minimalistic, and
anti-American. They would be correct on all accounts. Von Trier takes no
pains to hide his disdain for America, a country he has never visited.
However, let's not dwell on this peculiarity, because Dogville is not about
America alone, but rather about all of humanity, with a special emphasis on
Really, the anti-Americanism did not affect me in the least. It is an art
form and his freedom as an artist should let him say whatever he would like.
Thus, I will not comment on the political statements of the movie, but
rather von Trier's general style of movie-making in general. There was one
very very big problem I had with this film and that was the screenplay. It
was overt, lacking subtlety, and one hour too long. Von Trier takes us all
to be idiots and feels that he needs to point out every single symbol, every
single nuance he places into the movie. It is as if he feels that he needs
to point out exactly how clever he is, because we as an audience are too
stupid to recognize it on our own. For example, the symbolism with the
apples in the truck and the apple orcards... anyone with higher than
high-school English could figure out what those apples represented but von
Trier decided to have his third part omniscient narrator blatantly
spoon-feed it to us. I like movies that make you think, that are left open
to debate. Dogville, instead is a movie, where there is no room for
interpretation because everything has been spelled out for you. For lack of
better words, it is an intellectual movie for non-intellectuals.
The script was wooden in that he chose dialogue that no one in real life
would ever say. It was completely unrealistic. But then again, the movie is
supposed to be a parable. Are parables supposed to convey any form of
realism or can they be tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek? I don't understand
why everyone is doting on the outstanding acting in this movie when all the
principal actors (Kidman, Bettany, Bacall, Skarsgard, and Sevigny) have all
been better in other movies. The problem is that all these actors had very
wooden dialogue to work with and thus, came off being really wooden.
With all that said, I must point out that the minimalist set was genius. I
loved it. After the first half hour, you totally forgot that you were
watching everything on a sound stage. The no walls choice was particularly
effective in the first rape scene as everyone watched and continued their
daily chores. Secondly, the lighting was amazing since you could barely tell
that everything was inside given the realism of daylight and nighttime. And
finally, the ending scene is mind-blowingly fantastic. That scene alone
makes me give this movie a 7/10. Trust me, it would have been a lot lower
had it not been for the superb conclusion..
