What If Lars Von Trier Directed A Donald Duck Movie?

Imagine a Donald Duck feature directed by Danish agent provocateur, Lars Von Trier, and more-or-less under the strictures of his (now abandoned) Dogme 95 manifesto.

For one thing, there’s no way animation would be allowed, so that’s out. In its place, lots of camera movement as “attainable in the hand.”

Actually, that short breaks several of the Dogme 95 rules. Here’s the original “vow of chastity”, so you can see for yourself.

  1. Shooting must be done on location. Props and sets must not be brought in (if a particular prop is necessary for the story, a location must be chosen where this prop is to be found).
  2. The sound must never be produced apart from the images or vice versa. (Music must not be used unless it occurs where the scene is being shot).
  3. The camera must be hand-held. Any movement or immobility attainable in the hand is permitted. (The film must not take place where the camera is standing; shooting must take place where the film takes place).
  4. The film must be in colour. Special lighting is not acceptable. (If there is too little light for exposure the scene must be cut or a single lamp be attached to the camera).
  5. Optical work and filters are forbidden.
  6. The film must not contain superficial action. (Murders, weapons, etc. must not occur.)
  7. Temporal and geographical alienation are forbidden. (That is to say that the film takes place here and now.)
  8. Genre movies are not acceptable.
  9. The film format must be Academy 35mm film.
  10. The director must not be credited.

Rules that von Trier and his Dogme co-conspirators often ignored themselves, it’s worth noting.
