Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

Selbstkritik eines bürgerlichen Hundes

Directed by Julian Radlmaier
Germany, Denmark, 2017
  • German
  • English


Young filmmaker Julian, ironically played by director Julian Radlmaier himself, falls for a young expat and offers her the leading part in his wannabe Communist fairy tale film.

Our take

Communism, filmmaking, and the male gaze—Julian Radlmaier’s fantastical debut entirely lives up to (and delivers on) its astounding title. With welcome flourishes of humor, unreality and an incisive critique of political filmmaking, it resembles what a young Buñuel would have made of today’s Europe.
