Storyline

In Brunnenberg prison for men, the new warden introduces a revolutionary convict re-socializing project: training guide dogs for the blind. The perks make all convicts volunteer for only seven slots. Except burly macho Moskowitch 'Mosk', who cares only for the manly work out contest. The warden blackmails him, he can only do the contest if his assigned pup passes the first test. All dogs must pass or the project is halted. Unlike the others, Mosk only starts caring for his canine when it gets sick. Written by KGF Vissers

Not worthy for the big screen
26 July 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a preview test screening some while ago in Germany and i left very disappointed. The movie is all about clichés, you have your Turkish prison inmate named "Döner", you have your muscular bad-boy who becomes a good guy just by taking care of a dog, the "I'm so strict" prison-director which has a heart of gold.. etc... blabla... It is described as a mixture of drama and comedy, but you wouldn't know that unless you read the program.

With today's prices for cinema you're better off buying a couple of good DVD's rather than watching this unentertaining piece of cinema. The movie might've worked for me if it were on television, but it's nothing for the big screen.
