MY DOG KILLER

Young Marek’s life is grim: His father is a penniless alcoholic, his mother has been ostracised by her family and collective hate against the Roma people who also inhabit his village is the order of the day. The only thing that gives his life meaning is his trained attack dog Killer, who also helps Marek to gain acceptance from a group of local neo-Nazis. If only his half-brother Lukáš, a Roma, weren’t around... The film paints an unsparing picture of the dreariness, poverty and rawness of the Moravian-Slovak borderlands and the increasing racism endemic to the region. Marek embodies in impressive fashion the indifferent brutality that erupts from the apathy and desensitisation of those who are denied all perspective, as well as the attendant hopelessness and resigned acceptance of circumstances that accompany it.
