White God

2abfb442814a2a9eba08eea2f1026fee11Thirteen-year-old Lili fights to protect her dog Hagen. She is devastated when her father eventually sets Hagen free on the streets. Still innocently believing love can conquer any difficulty, Lili sets out to find her dog and save him.

Kornél Mundruczó’s White God was one of my most anticipated films of this year. Sadly, it was the most disappointing film I have seen this year. This film was downright terrible. Everything with the humans in this film is terrible. They are never fleshed out. There is no work done with them to make you care in the slightest about them. Two hours is far too long for this film. I was done with this by the 40-minute mark. All of the scenes with the dogs are not interesting. The dog is great here, but there is nothing done here to make the scenes interesting. The best thing about this is the dogs. Only half of the dogs in this film are actually dogs, but they all look like dogs. There are so many head-scratching choices in this film. For example, the ending of this film is so out of place. It makes no sense. It is just there to show off. There is some of the worst shaky camera I have ever seen in this. It is just distracting. It adds nothing to the film.
