Directed by Ulrich Seidl
With an unsettlingly voyeurism, Dog Days weaves
together six stories of devastated lives in a Vienna suburb during a harsh
summer heat wave. As the "dog days" wear on, the lives sink deeper into
despair, aggression and abuse. A harsh critique on the complacency and
emptiness of suburbia. Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2001 Venice
Film Festival. "An engrossing and disturbing film" (Elvis Mitchell, The
New York Times). Uncut version. German with English subtitles.
