The Music of “Dogville”

December 2nd, 2011



  •  

    The classical music of Vivaldi, Handel, Pergolesi and Albinoni is heard throughout “Dogville”. But it is the song featured during the end credits that most people remember.

     

    “Young Americans” by David Bowie plays over a series of disturbing photographs of Americans living in abject poverty. There is debate as to why he chose the song and the photos but, like everything Lars von Trier does – it challenges you to think.
