Film Review (Vassilis Kroustallis)
The film is a sweet delight in intricacy, using its own props (like the red ribbon on the pup) to suggest subversion. The tube-like, almost spineless deceased dogs steal the show visually, but it is the adventure of the little pup that registers. As it moves through corridor after corridor and a space-bending environment, it realizes that curiosity can lead to destruction. A feast of anticipation and a joyful film -in its own, weird way.
