White God 2014


A dog centric movie that is not one of those Disney type movies. The opening sequence is almost enough to make one a vegetarian, trumping the chicken sequence in Samsara and Fassbinder's slaughter house sequence. Two parallel stories. No CGI for the dogs. Pretty amazing. Available from Netflix, but not streaming.

I watched this last night (iTunes rental) and thought it was a bit slow. The imagery in the dog scenes was pretty amazing. I wanted to like it more than I did. I wonder if there might be an American remake.

The BR from Netflix has some interesting bonus features. The Hungarian director speaking in English and the principal dog trainer who explains how what one sees on film was able to be pulled off.

FWIW, I am a huge HUGE dog lover.
I can't bear the sight or even the thought of dogs being abused/harmed.
I can only watch a movie/show where domestic animals do not suffer (yeah, I know...let's not go there, please).


For those who have actually seen the movie:
Does this have a "happy ending?"
How much dog "tragedy" is in it?
Do you consider it to be a feel-good movie?

Sort of.

Sort of. But it is not a Disney type movie in which they lived happily ever after. Bottom line is that this movie is not for you.

In this clip the director and trainer are talking about how they filmed many of the scenes with the dogs. It does contain small spoilers but might make the movie easier to watch if your a dog lover.

Plus, knowing this might help a bit.

Spoiler!

Thanx KOA.


I am very sensitive about animal abuse.
FWIW, I don't give 2 sh*@ts about adult humans hurting each other, but I draw the line with violence against the helpless/innocent.

There is a give away on the posted trailer: The Unwanted Will Have Their Day.

Perhaps, you will have to break down and watch it. Besides, no dogs were hurt during the making of the film. Remember, movies create an illusion of reality.
