SummaryAdd a Summary
"White God" is the English title of this Hungarian-made movie. (as of Aug'15, it's only listed in NYPL index by its Hungarian title).
A dystopic view of modern society. In a novel twist, the canine protagonist's story is seen primarily through the eyes of a DOG! Mixed breed dogs are confiscated & confined. A tipping point is reached, and they form a quasi-canine "army" to reclaim the future that they've been denied.
At the heart of this piece (involving 100's of real-life dogs) is the story of a heartbroken dog who yearns to return to his best friend, a young Hungarian girl.
Description adapted from "Backfront" (Hungarian film critique magazine):
"The screenplay traces the misadventures of a girl and her best friend, a dog, in a world of winners and losers. A world in which pedigree is a decisive factor.
In a rare turn-of-events, genuine affection serves as the dog's catalyst for rebellion against an unjust fate.
The film promotes the hope of peace, and the belief that the eternal war (between higher and lower beings) will one day be brought to an end.”
