Storyline

Where the Dogs Divide Her begins amid the aftermath of a family massacre. A nameless man sits in an unfamiliar bathroom, his bloodied hands trembling as he ponders his crime of passion. An amnesiac without an identity, he goes in search of himself, only to unearth a long-buried family secret surrounding the bizarre deaths of his parents. An abstract ghost story populated by ever-threatening specters, shadowy souls with evil motives who inhabit a nightmare world within a troubled killer's psyche. They might offer a smile or a kind word, but their only purpose is to snare others into their Hell. Before the killer can come to terms with his deeds and escape this esoteric prison, he must confront his dead parents and make good on an infant's promise made thirty years ago. Written by Andrew Rutley

Fragments in the bottom of a well
27 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'll begin the review by stating what WHERE THE DOGS DIVIDE HER is not: it's not a dreadfully shot, poorly lit, no budget independent with a terrible script and non-existent acting. There, now that we've got the basics out of the way, I can tell you want this film is:

WHERE THE DOGS DIVIDE HER, perhaps like the universe from which it has arisen, consists largely of temporal fragments, moments loosely strung together to form a whole which is sometimes plainly lucid and at others anything but. Naturally, the film requires the viewer to give a little too (a rather ghastly proposal these days). There are an abundance of answers to be had, but only if the viewer has formed an inkling of the questions to ask.

Wonderfully shot and lit, this little gem of a film achieves truly remarkable things on a tiny budget, and does what the vast majority of films at this level (or any level for that matter) consistently fail to do - it both creates and sustains a believable, inner world of its own – a world both interesting and unique in which its players are often completely lost and terribly at the mercy of.

Though at times both literally and thematically extreme, this film is about subtleties - subtleties of mood and atmosphere – the way a patch of greenish light falls across the rich splendour of a mahogany writing desk while a monosyllabic base drone attempts to accompany a fading lullaby can take a moment from untroubled bliss to ungodly wretchedness.

Should you plumb such depths, symbolism and metaphors which often mislead as though purely out of spite, must be taken and studied within the context within which they are delivered, otherwise the conclusion drawn will be anything but the road less travelled. It is no good here taking out your trusty blueprint and dropping it across the length of the film hoping for a glossary or an Idiot's Guide, doing so will only lead you astray and have you again reaching for you battered copy of Jacob's Ladder.
