A novel mix of a G-rated children's movie and a R-18+ rated horror film...
A novel and fascinating blend of the old Lassie movies with Hitchcock's The Birds. I was a bit stumped thinking about the intended demographic. Thematically it was a children's movie, but it should also be rated at least R18+ for gory violence and animal abuse. This leaves us with an imaginary demographic, mathematically speaking. Still I liked parts of it. Parts of the movie are visually astounding, while the main and supporting dog actors were expressive and well-trained.
Agree with the wise reviewer that said, "It is also a parable about how one species dominates another in the belief it is the superior." But, in addition it's also a tale of huge bastards of the non-canine variant. Not to mention the story of the extraordinary vile scumbaggery by the hominem species.
Added bonus. It was interesting to learn that 100% of all Hungarians are either a**ho***, sociopaths, or both, with the exception of a 13-yo girl. (Then again, it is true that much of the Hungarian society in recent years has suffered from ugly strain of xenophobia directed at transitory Syrian refugees. Not that it's the only country at that.)
