This time it's the boy who gets the bullet for the dog
28 May 2019 | by mayamax-42763See all my reviews

Fabulous adventure and compelling story make up this rushing masterpiece of the dog / man genre. The simplicity of the story with its ancestral contours perfectly frames the Yugoslav mountain community of the 70s. The animal-man friendship leans towards the boy who arrives to the extreme to save the "beast" so feared by local folklore. Work for the heart that will cheer the spectators.
