Roman returns to the land inherited from his grandfather near the Ukraine border. Fully decided to sell this vast but desolate property, he is warned by the local cop that his men will not let go of the land.

  • Review

    Dogs is different from typical Romanian New Wave films, shot as a crime thriller like the type found in Cormac McCarthy’s novels, rather than focusing on world problems. The film tries to draw out the darkness hidden inside. The long take slowly following the surface of the swamp goes on seemingly forever. Then the story of a Romanian who had inherited a huge plot off land from his grandfather follows. There is a farm located near this isolated swap. The Romanian tries to sell the farm and earn cash but it is impossible. Like many other crime story, it is filled with issues of money, conflicts between the police and the notary, blackmai from dangerous people, and violence. Literary imagination and visual sensation are both well-balanced. Like a Western film, a feeling nervous and uneasy is present from beginning to end. [JANG Byungwon]
