Pike time in Vallalodid, awards and memories

user
Somehow eight days of compact quality cinema viewing have slipped by, the main problem being how to find some time to write at least some of it down between widely spaced out screenings. Downtown Valladolid is a tricky maze of narrow streets with sixteenth century churches at every turn, but fortunately, with an extremely friendly populace willing to steer you straight every time you get lost -- on average, three times a day -- but what a nice city to get lost in!

Lars Von Trier's anticipated Manderlay nominated for the Golden Palm met with some of the same scepticism that was leveled at Dogville two years ago.

Manderlay has the same Brechtian set design as Dogville , this time the floor is white with black lines. With the debut of Bryce Dallas Howard, the star appe...
