Never thought such a tale of nihilism could be told through the thoughts of a dog. I usually don't like movies with voice over, but Audiard's screenplay works out. Funny how many people watch the movie and have their own "dogs are better than men" interpretation of a movie where Hitler is used as a symbol of senseless animalism. This is not a moral play.
Oh so french! Regardless, great entertainment. A wonderful clash of ownership versus nature presented with dark wit. I laughed at the extremes that the dog goes through and the intent of his actions. Yet through the laughter and situational comedy, there was an enlightened comfort at the end of the movie.
I saw this as the unlikely elevation to the dog's perception in respect to change from a savage nature to one of acceptance. This's contrasted with the young boy's slow growth from a basic immature nature into a merely acceptable nateure as exhibited in the dogs younger days. so eloquently portrayed in the last scenes of the movie
Totalmente alejada de las pendejadas tipo Beethoveen, Lassie, o aquellas tipicas telenovelas del "canal de las estrellas", la visiòn que maneja el director Boivin es una profunda critica a la sociedad francesa (desde el punto de vista del canino titular) y ademàs de destilar generosas cantidades de cinismo y mala leche, resulta ser casi ò tan sobrecogedora como las pelìculas de Gaspar Noè.
