Great insight in Lars Von Triers
12 December 2003 | by sandspider1See all my reviews

I saw this documentary on the Denmark DVD of Dogville and because I thought the film was brilliant I was eager to watch this to see into the mind of the great Lars Von Triers and to see how he directs and interacts with the cast. Anyone who is a fan of Dogville should watch this because you can understand the effort into making this film. I strongly recommend the film and I strongly recommend this.
