Call it Planet of the Dogs, except it’s so much more than that. This stunner, out of Hungaria, splits its action between Lili (Zsofia Psotta), an adolescent starting to feel the first pangs of, er, maturity, and Hagen, her dog, who is kicked out of her home when she’s sent to live with her cold, vicious father. Hagen’s brutal journey from a street dog to a contender in dog fights to the leader of a canine uprising parallels Lili’s first steps into adulthood, flirting with an older boy, going to booze-fueled parties, and acting out in school, and director Kornel Mundruczo gives both storylines a feverish immediacy. The reflective nature of these narratives rendersWhite God at once a unique, emotionally effective action film with an animal-rights bend and a ferocious, sardonic satire of how women are often treated when they become mature and stop listening to adults – particularly men – so often. — Chris Cabin
