Dog Days
Filmfest 2010

DOG DAYS - winner of the Grand Special Jury Prize of the 2001 Venice Film Festival - shuffles six stories of sunstroked ennui and rage in the city's bland bourgeois suburbs — from a schoolteacher whose date with the bloated, piggish man she professes to love turns violent to the divorced couple who still live together even though they can barely tolerate each other. But while the title would lead you to believe it's the temperature that's making tempers rise, once you get a good look at how these people live, you might conclude their winters are filled with just as much discontent.
