Tierische Liebe

Ulrich Seidl Austria, 1995

Øyvind Rype's rating of the film Animal Love

Basically a series of isolated tableuxs depicting the dysfunctional pet owners of Austria and showcasing animal/human-relationship gone too far. On paper, or rather the dvd cover the movie is indeed promising. Unfortunately with a 2hr runtime Seidl is bound to repeat himself and it suffers from way too much filler material. There is undoubtedly some gold here but it's regretably buried in dog excrements. **
