Storyline

In conurbations where hundreds of thousands live alongside one another, in the era of a highly technological society, in which communication has never played such a significant role, man has become lonely. Disappointed by his fellow human beings, he turns to animals. Dogs and other domestic animals serve him as companions, life partners, cuddly objects and bedfellows.

User Reviews

 
Disturbing "documentary" from Austrian suburbia.

This is a "documentary" about isolation and despair, as a consequence of modern urbanization. The film portrays a series of sad fates, people who, in lack of human social networks, grow attached to their animal companions.

The film itself is both grotesque and sad, but at the same time visually stunning. It is a "must see" for all people committed to social change, social workers, teachers and students. It is a "must see" for all film enthusiasts, but as this film is quite shocking, I will not recommend it for the average audience.

This film is forbidden in Norway per 1997.
