White God

Hungarian writer and director Kornél Mundruczó delivers an interesting mix of drama and fantasy. After a young girl is forced to abandon her beloved dog, she sets out to find and save him from abuse. While Mundruczó succeeds with the drama, his fantasy section fails to live up to the set up of the revolting dogs which was done without the help of CGI. The stunning and deserted Budapest locations adds to the atmosphere but not enough. Young Zsófia Psotta stars with a solid performance along a talented cast of humans and canines. 1001 Films' coverage of the 67th Festival de Cannes.
