A Dog's Death (2020) Slamdance 2020
Bitter and extremely acid take down of the dull bored middle class, A DOG'S DEATH is going to make many people uncomfortable. This is a film where everything that happens makes you wince. Even as we chuckle at some of the turns we are also mixing in a groan because we know that we probably shouldn't be laughing.
While writer director Matias Gantzhas given us an excellent script it is the work of Guillermo Arengo and Pelusa Vidal who manage to sell the events and keep us watching. They manage to walk the fine line so we both are siding for them but also completely understand that what happens is entirely their fault. Because they never trip over the line we keep watching.
This is a smart little film and recommended who like their comedy like their chocolate dark and bitter.
