It didn't look shoddy at all, but you could just tell.
The point is, as horrific as the subject matter of this movie is, it wasn't so graphic that the average person who loves animals wont be able to watch it. It's tough, but it's manageable. Even more important, the movie's overall payoff is well-worth enduring those tougher moments for.
White God is the story of Lili; a thirteen-year-old girl who seems to hate life, but really loves her dog, Hagen. When her asshole Father dumps the poor pooch on the street, rather than pay a State Fee too keep him, she is heartbroken. Defying her Father's wishes, Lili begins to search for Hagen, because she loves him, and fuck everybody else and their dog-hating asses!
|"FUCK YOU, DAD."|
|NO, HE ISN'T SMILING.|
|THE FINAL FIGHT.|
|HOW COULD ANYONE EVER WANT TO HURT THAT FACE?|
Zsofia Psotta did a great job as Lili, especially for this being her first role ever. And I'm just going to go ahead and say it: the dogs in this movie did a great job "acting" out their roles. Alright, maybe it mostly had to do with the training that they received, and with a trainer giving them commands off-camera, but I don't care. They were all good boys and girls!
|LIFE AIN'T EASY IN BUDAPEST.|
If you like the idea of being able to watch dogs literally have their day, then give this one a rent and enjoy. Maybe tuck a box of Kleenex behind the couch if you're the overly-emotional type though. You may need it.
White God is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD.
