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 like it
I like the movie. Good werewolf atmosphere.
It was good, but a bit slow and underwhelming.
Excellent movie which remined me a lot of a french one which name escapes me, where instead of a werewolf, a teenage girl transforms into some kind of mermaid. Both movies are very similar. Aesthetically however, this one felt a lot like swedish movie Border.
This was a really slow burner. Too slow to the point where it was just boring I found. Acting was good, but overall, just boring and not interesting. I wouldn't recommend.
