Every boy wants a dog but every dog needs a boy.
30 May 2016 | by DanelushSee all my reviews

This movie is a real gem, probably hidden somewhere in a dusty film archive.

I could never understand why good movies are kept in the dark and left for destruction and not restored and re-released. Hey, but maybe that's just me.

OK, I agree, this movie may be old but let me say that even though I've seen this movie years ago it still left me with a deep impression.

It's a story about a boy lost in a world where fear and survival is preserving the human beings while deforming their sense of humanity. In a world affected by the war atrocities, a boy finds a friend, a dog who needed a friend in order to remain man's best friend, for in such moments, the dog, while serving the man becomes as wild and evil as an wolf. Deformed by the war in the same manner a man would have been and remaining alone, without his master, now dead, the dog has become untamed and wild and appearing as an wolf it is considered an wolf, therefore a threat for the animal stock and hunted down.

I hope they are going to release it on DVD and distribute it world wide. Perhaps tastes differ but my advice is: If you get a chance to see this, rented or bought, don't hesitate to do it.
