A movie about dogs,but not for dog lovers. Dark and sinister.
23 March 2013 | by (another heavenly world) – See all my reviews

The film is disturbing and ugly. I don't really find any beauty in it. There is a passion for dogs and the best moments are when the dogs perform all alone. I could eventually see it as philosophical inquiry into what we've done as humans, turning wolves into dogs and then becoming savage animals ourselves in the way we many times treat the animals that trust us. The human characters in the movie are very hard to sympathize with. All of them. So, again, a very dark movie. Not for sensitive people and while there is not gore per se, the violence suggested can be quite disturbing. The direction is not bad. Perhaps the most interesting part of the movie.
