5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect brilliance ..., 17 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The King Is Alive [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
This is another film shot using the Dogme 95 rules started by Lars Von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg.

It follows the fortunes of a group of bus travellers in the Namibian desert who break down in an abadoned mining village. As the heat, lack of food and water and isolation start to take their toll one of the group starts to write down 'King Lear' from memory and gets the other travellers to rehearse staging the play.

Breakdowns in relationships ensue and the true horror of civilisation seperation creeps into their psyche. Watch if you are a Dogme 95 fan, love great acting and character driven stories, or are just a fan of Jennifer Jason Leigh, an actress who we don't see enough off nowadays. Brilliant.
