The second film in Lars von Triers American trilogy picking up where DOGVILLE left off is another technically audacious gleefully brash condemnation of American society this time focusing on the horrific legacy of slavery. in MANDERLAY Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard replacing Nicole Kidman) and her father (Willem Dafoe replacing James Caan) have arrived at the gates of a plantation in Alabama. When an elderly black woman knocks on the car door asking for help Grace sees an opportunity to become a heroic woman of action. Sending her father away Grace settles in Manderlay where she tries to get the African-American workers to embrace their freedom once and for all. But for some reason it appears that everyone--from the wise Wilhelm (Danny Glover) to the stubborn Thomas (Michael Abiteboul) to the strong Timothy (Isaach de Bankole)--is content to live a life of subservience. Her futile attempt to instill pride in the group takes its toll rendering Grace exhausted defeated and hopeless. Like DOGVILLE von Triers film is shot on a soundstage in a theatrically stylized manner that will confound many viewers but the committed performances humanize the film and give it its cold bitter heart.
