Jeanne Moreau and Catherine Deneuve are but two examples of this gorgeous gallic phenomenon, where their later roles take on even greater gravitas as the subtle lines of their face change, their voices lowers a register and their once all-too-fragile beauty slightly hardens and becomes as enduring as a Greek sculpture. But blood courses through their veins and passion, if not only...

What Write My Essay Services Can Offer on Dogma Cinema

user
In 1995, Danish directors Lars von Trier, Thomas Vinterberg, Soren Kragh-Jacobsen and Kristian Levrin signed a manifesto that declared the birth of Dogma Cinema. Dogma Cinema is basically anything that isn't what a commercial film is all about: hand-held camera is used, there's no artificial lighting, and all the actors don't have previous acting experience. The result is unrestricted creativity and cinema in the raw. It was the case with Lars von Trier, as his films are considered...
