An Eifel Tower in art
28 July 2007 | by AlexK1978See all my reviews

This beautiful film is a true classic with all the actors each in their zenith of acting and the director being perhaps one of the best in Soviet times. This masterpiece can even be put close to the 1979 "Tot samyy Myunkhgauzen" which, undoubtedly, is the crown of achievable art. With unforgettable music and just amazing acting, Sobaka will spellbound you from the start. Mikhail Lozinsky delivers an unbelievable good translation from Spanish. For Sobaka na Cene (Dog on the Hay) is an old drama written by Lope de Vega. What defines old Spanish tales is the fact that they are very intriguing. If there ever was an Eifel Tower in art, this just has to be it!
