Overview

Kornél Mundruczó's drama White God tells the tale of a tenacious dog and its loving owner, a 13-year-old girl whose parents are engaged in an ugly divorce. Set in Hungary, the movie kicks off as the government passes a law to encourage and control dog breeding that forces those owning mutts to pay an extra tax. This leads to heartbreak for young Lili (Zsófia Psotta), when her frustrated father abandons her beloved dog Hagen on the street in order to avoid the new law. Lili decides to reunite with her dog, while Hagen also longs for Lili, and ends up leading a group of similarly abandoned canines. White God screened at the Un Certain Regard program at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

This is a well-made character movie centering around Hagen and his canine friends. I felt very reluctant to see it at first, not wanting to see any animals being abused or hurt. Only after reading that all the fights were the result of great training using positive reinforcements and that all the dogs in the film were from shelters that have all been adopted, did I feel reassured enough to watch it. And I am glad. One sees the world through Hagen's eyes as he's torn from the loving arms of Lili in an instant and experiences cruelties that humans are capable of. The dog actors - two portrayed Hagen - did a superb job showing Hagen's progression from a gentle companion to a ferocious fighter out for revenge. Not for the faint of heart but extremely well-made.
