A father forces his daughter to abandon her dog Hagen in the streets of Budapest. Left to fend on his own Hagen s adventurous peregrinations soon turn into an odyssey of almost unbearable human cruelty. White God is a film that surprises. What starts as a lost pooch melodrama crescendos into an hallucinatory tale of telepathic dogs led by a canine epic hero. Mundruczo may take a few swipes at right-wing dreams of ethnic purity but the film’s lustrous beauty and mythic resonance connect it to much more. What emerges is a parable about power relationships oppression and freedom told by what are surely the most engaging dogs ever filmed.
