Roman returns to the land he has just inherited from his grandfather. Fully decided to sell this vast but desolate property, he is warned by the local cop that his grandfather was a local crime lord and his men will not let go of the land.
With gorgeous, sunbaked widescreen cinematography by Andrei Butica and masterful performances by three of Romania’s finest actors, DOGS is a terrifying allegory about class and corruption that builds towards a grim and bloody showdown. With DOGS, Mirică places himself squarely in the Western tradition exemplified by Sam Peckinpah and Anthony Mann.
Director Bogdan Mirica (France, 2016) 104 min. Romanian with English Subtitles
