MANIFESTO (2015) Movie Trailer: Cate Blanchett Plays 13 Different Characters

Cate Blanchett Collage Manifesto

Manifesto Trailer

Julian Rosefeldt‘s Manifesto (2015) movie trailer stars Cate Blanchett, Erika Bauer, Carl Dietrich, Marie Borkowski Foedrowitz, and Ea-Ja Kim. Manifesto‘s plot sysnopsis: “Tour-de-force: a term so overused that we need an undeniable acting performance to renew its meaning for cinema. Cate Blanchett has just given us one, going all-out in Manifesto. Already respected as one of the best actresses in film, Blanchett raises the bar even higher by playing 13 different roles in Manifesto, embodying some of the most influential and emotional artist manifestos in history.

The architect of this unique film idea is director Julian Rosefeldt, a veteran of intricate films and installations. In Manifesto, he uses the words from various twentieth century manifestos of artists, architects, and filmmakers for dialogue. With a gorgeous production and luscious cinematography that would make Baz Luhrmann proud, Rosefeldt puts Blanchett in the everyday world—as a housewife, a factory worker, or a TV anchor—declaring the words that have inspired whole art movements. Manifesto is entertaining while also asking us to question if these passionate statements still hold true and inspire us today.”

Manifesto seems like a one person play, instead of a film, in which Cate Blanchett is the star. I am looking forward to seeing Blanchett play the male character. What mannerisms and voice will she use? This is the type of film that true actors die to be apart. It allows them to show their acting range in one contained narrative.

What each character has to say seems very dark, reflecting their state of mind, no matter how happy, outwardly, some of them seem.
