Dogtooth is a disturbing and complex movie. The film depicts the life of a married couple who chose to raise their three children in isolation and cut off from the outside world. The film portrays the life and times as the elder try to keep up the illusion by all sorts of bizarre means and care for their children’s needs, at what cost that may be (including their sanity). The movie has its funny moments, but the overall tone of tragedy and bleakness quickly dismisses any awkward chuckles with a grim reality which swirls into a brutal and Utopian vision of a patriarch who actually prefers dogs over people. The film is very non-Hollywood, which results in an cinematic realism that makes the film the more touching and hard to endure. The filmmaker was both courageous as well as observant enough to focus on the youths’ emerging sexuality to be the primary agent of trouble, but look out for the man-eating cat and planes crashing in the garden, whoever catches them first, can keep them.
