Crime • R • 2003 • 2 hr 58 min
I had to push me through the beginning of the film, which was somewhat tedious, but at the same time essential for the ending to make sense.
The amazing act and writing just draws you in and never lets go
Feels like you watching very high budget casting video. Truly amazing movie. Stunning and must watch movie. Highly recommended!
Feels very strange and unsettling the entire time. Very engaging story with an awesome cast
Lack of scenery and cinematic effects forces you to observe the beauty of acting,characters and the slow deterioration of humane moralities
Incredibly engaging in-spite of minimalist approach-a cautionary tale about tolerance.Kidman’s 2nd best performance,first being Moulin Rouge
Raw and uncomfortable. The absence of any walls and backgrounds is crucial.
The change of Grace character was amazing. Watching this was an amazing experience. 8/10
Even if it's a bit long, it's a daring and captivating study on human condition, with a dazzling ending.
So deep and brilliant.Thats all i need to say.
A mysterious woman named Grace hides in a small mountain town from criminals who pursue her. The town is two-faced and offers to harbor Grace as long as she can make it worth their effort, so Grace works hard under the employ of various townspeople to win their favor. Tensions flare, however, and Grace's status as a helpless outsider provokes vicious contempt and abuse from the citizens of Dogville.
In 1933, after leaving Dogville, Grace Margaret Mulligan sees a slave being punished at a cotton farm called Manderlay. Officially slavery is illegal and Grace stands up against the owners of the farm. She stays with some gangsters in Manderlay and tries to influence the situation. But when harvest time comes Grace sees the social and economic reality of Manderlay.
