Fairly brilliant take-off of "La Jetee" - but it's a dog's life
20 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A fairly brilliant take-off of Chris Marker's "La Jetee" in that the film is in black and white, told (almost) entirely with still images, but here the sense of fun is higher. A scientist discovers a serum to turn into a dog.

Harden has the mode pretty right. French voice-over, pleasant but somewhat droning music beneath. Nice shots of dogs running through the streets of Paris. The "fake" aging process on the film looks a little too fake, but it's a lark. Smart and it does not wear out its welcome. It could have made its point at a handful of points, 3 minutes in, 5 minutes in, etc., but he manages to give a nice twist to the plot to keep it going.

Be a great opener to "12 Monkeys." Nearly political in tone, too.

Great.
