this movie is definitely underrated
21 September 2016 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

It's really a good movie. I can't stop watching it twice at a time. You can find both you,your family,your friends,your neighbor, all of us,in it. It's actually 4 dogs in 4 different stories,which I thought to be 1 dog the first time I watched it. Maybe the only thing characters sharing in common is that they all raise a wiener dog. Its name is wiener-dog, but has not so much to do with it, dog is not main character. People all have their problems, towards living and death.In this movie it shows to us.Maybe you have parents less responsibility; maybe you are losing hope to life,and miss nothing in your place; maybe you're suffering from your career-used to be successful but now nothing; maybe you're facing life ends. It shows us stories in dramatic way, kind of interesting,and also sarcastic. Many scenes impressed me a lot, quite interesting. It's a movie for people who go through life or have their own life thoughts. There is no happy ending, but you won't feel too bad maybe.It's really good.
