When Animals Dream
Directed by Jonas Alexander Arnby
Marie is a shy teenage girl who lives in a sleepy Danish fishing community with her father and wheelchair-bound mother. Treated as an outsider by the other villagers, Marie feels isolated and alone. When Marie starts to exhibit a strange rash and other frightening physical changes, she searches for answers about her family’s past and the truth behind her mother’s affliction, vowing to embrace her burgeoning physical transformation. Notable for its similarities to GINGER SNAPS and LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, WHEN ANIMALS DREAM uses horror as a metaphor for puberty, identity and adolescence in this haunting tale.
Marie finds herself transforming in this affecting coming-of-age werewolf film from Denmark.
Cast: Sonja Richter, Jakob Oftebro, Lars Mikkelsen, Stig Hoffmeyer
I had to track this one down on DVD and add it to my woowoof collection. One of the good ones.
Not a bad movie, but somewhat dull and the plot was a little see through from the beginning. Not really an in depth story, just kinda a shaving of the life of this character. Wanted more from the movie...got as much as excitement as one would from a plain white table from Ikea.
Really well done, enjoyed it.
