White God

15 yrs 121 minutes 2014 6.8

The Hungarian Kornél Mundruczó's allegorical film White God won the award for Best Film in the category “Un certain regard” at the Cannes Film Festival 2014. In a near future, a new law is put in place introducing a fine for mixed-breed dogs. Soon, deserted, distorted and hungry dogs run around all over the streets. The 13-year-old Lili loves her dog Hagen, but her father throws him out on the street. Hagen is stabbed and attacked by evil people and then ends up in company with other stray dogs that begin to revolt against humanity. "White dog is a realistically told drama in a shabby, worn out Budapest with a hard attitude between people. The drama evolves into a clear concept film, in which Mundruczó delivers a convincing visual form", writes Annika Gustafsson in Sydsvenskan and rates it 4 out of 5.
