Thirteen-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.
A cautionary tale between a superior species and its disgraced inferior - Favoring pedigree dogs, a new regulation puts a severe tax on mixed breeds. Owners dump their dogs and shelters become overcrowded. 13-year-old Lili fights desperately to protect her pet Hagen, but her father eventually sets the dog free on the streets. Written by
All dogs that were used in the film (other than the two trained actor dogs that played Hagen) had been from local shelters and went through training for the film. 280 canines were used (according to the producer). By the end of the film, because the dogs were all over the streets with individual trainers all the time during filming, they all found homes. See more »
I have never left a review on any movie before, but I was surprised by the bad reviews, so I decided to write my own one.
First of all, people were complaining about the 'bad acting', which was actually not horrible in my opinion, and it was the only dark spot of the film. Yes, I did not like the acting of the director, because of the accent he chose, but the others were quite good. The little girl, who played 'Lili', was annoying in the first 5 minutes, but when the story got more intense, how she acted was so real, actually so Hungarian.
I've never watched the trailers, and I am so happy I haven't. I did not know what to expect, so I got a shock in every 10 minutes. I felt sorry for the dogs, and actually cared about every character. Very exciting.
The ending is perfect, no more or less than needed. I loved it.
My advice would be: DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILERS, GET SURPRISED !
