Storyline

Two Angola, the colonial and the contemporary, spaced 60 years, share the curse of a mysterious island. In the past, the epicenter of the tragedy is an evil fortress, tomb of revolutionaries deported from the mainland. In the present, the building of a luxurious resort awakens the relentless jaw of justice. Soon after, workmen lacerated dead bodies, begin to appear. The horror spreads rapidly. Pedro Mbala is sent to the island to solve the problem. His target is a pack of stray dogs. Written by Virgilio Almeida

Island of Dogs
19 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

A fascinating jaunt through a part of Africa unfortunately rarely put on film.

The flag of Portugal is replaced with that of Angola on top of a fort on the titular island of dogs - a summary of sorts of the subject of the film. Though essentially none of the characters are characters merely analogies to large subsets of the population the film gives us some breathtaking imagery and violent scenes of dogs attacking various evil-doers, Portuguese and Angolan.
