Unlike many movies with animal characters, "White God" feels legitimately real.

Man stelle sich einen Lassie Film mit einer 18er Freigabe und revolutionärer Rahmenhandlung vor. Genau das ist White God, in dem Strassenhunde grausame Menschen angreifen. Abseits von den Kampfszenen der Hunde gegen die Menschen bietet diese ungarische Produktion noch jede Menge harten Sex und Drogenszenen. White God basiert auf den Ängsten, die klassische Tier- und Monsterfilme so unvergesslich machen. Die Geschichte der 13jährigen Lili (Zsofia Psotta) und ihrem Hund Hagen mag nicht immer nachvollziehbar sein - doch vielleicht liegt das daran, dass White God meilenweit von den Traditionen des Hollywood Erzählkinos angesiedelt ist. White God wirkt wie ein Melodram der Stummfilm-Ära, wie pures Kino. Die meiste Zeit fühlt man sich, als ob White God einfach die Verfilmung eines …

A Girl and Her Dog... Sort of

Snoogans - wrote on 01/13/2016

This 'girl-and-her-dog' story evolves into a substantial emotional investing journey of one canine's loss of ownership, abuse, and eventual retribution. There are some hard scenes depicting animal abuse that look fairly realistic, but are done tastefully. I found it to work more effectively than any other animal centered story, if not just for the excellent training of the dogs. These are some of the best animal performances I've seen in any movie. Some would find the events of the third act more fitting to a half comedic B-horor film. However, they don't come off that way. It's a fantasy turn that I didn't mind as much due to my strong investments with the girl and dog, but it did feel strange at the same time. The final scene almost makes up for it, though. It has a nice …

The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

Really interesting - what starts off as kind of a family drama slowly morphs into a type of horror film (ala Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds). Lili and Hagen are inseparable - though he's a mixed-breed mutt and she's a moody 13-year-old. But it all goes wrong when she's sent to stay with her father - who lives in an apartment where dogs are frowned upon. Also frowned upon - dogs interrupting her orchestra practice. Her dad, fed up, let's Hagen go - on the street. What follows is a two-fold journey - Lili, looking for Hagen, gets caught up trying to find him while also trying to get back into the orchestra (props for trumpet - that was my old instrument of choice). Hagen has it much worse - shades of Samuel Fuller's "White Dog" as he finds himself in part of a dog-fighting ring before …
