Her daughter Florence gives Mrs. Deville bull-terrier Baxter as a surprise present. Although she's afraid of him, she doesn't want to give him away because she feels lonely. But Baxter has his own ideas - he longs to be dominated, to be challenged - and so he isn't content with his boring life with the old lady. To get rid of her, he causes an accident. It works, and he's given to the neighbors, a young couple. He's happy... for a while. When they get a baby, he again takes action. Written by

Even tho' I don´t like French movies, "Baxter" amazed me. The little bull-terrier dog looking forward killing or not (revealing the thoughts that pass through its mind). The scary young boy with an angel face who shows a growing dark side. Their disturbing friendship. These things make the plot very attractive and original. By the way: the final scenes are to be remembered. I give this title a 7.5 out of 10.
