Animal Love
Filmfest 2010

The film presents a collection of cruelly maladjusted humans, some of them barely connected to other people and living in almost complete social isolation. The animals they live with are their only contact with 'human' kindness, and that irony makes them seem sicker than ever. None of the animals seems to be actually molested, except for one painful episode with a fairly attractive woman. She ignores various phone messages from crudely amorous men and then indulges in some unpleasantly erotic play with her dog on the floor. Hell on Earth is to be found in horrid human relationships.
