White God is a technically and emotionally marvelous film

23 January 2015 | by willden21 (Utah)
     White God 9/10 - This is a wonderful movie that plays as a parable about separatism and Hungarian politics during democratic rule. On the surface however lays an entertaining revenge flick against animal cruelty and a drama about the love of an animal towards it''s human "the White God". The director uses a mish mash of genre''s to keep the audience on it''s toes, while paying homage to everything from Fuller''s White Dog, to Hitchcock''s Birds. The best part of the film was that they hired hundreds of shelter dogs and spent months training them, and after the film, the director and crew worked hard to get every dog adopted! These dogs are some of the best actors I have ever seen. This is a marvelous yet challenging film.

A proper Hungarian movie

9/10
Author: Ariel Káoaz from Budapest, Hungary
     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 !

Hungarian rhapsody of canine power
10/10
Author: Lee Eisenberg from Portland, Oregon, USA
     Sort of a modern spin on "The Birds", Kornél Mundruczó''s "Fehér isten" ("White God" in English) brings up the issue of cruelty to animals. One might say that the dogs are more human than most of the human characters: these canines have pronounced ways of communicating with each other and picking up on danger, while most of the humans do horrendous things to them.
     The song that the band plays is Franz Liszt''s "Hungarian Rhapsody #2", which you may have heard in numerous Looney Tunes cartoons, and also in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (Daffy and Donald play it on the pianos and screw with each other''s performances). Here it seems to represent the characters'' attempt to celebrate everything that they consider Hungarian, even as their countrymen do the most heartless things to animals. So, this is a fine piece of work from the Magyar Republic. I recommend it.
