WHITE GOD starts of as a story of a Lili ( Zsofia Psotta) and her dog Hagen tragically torn apart by her father, more or less because her hates her mother and he is a total arsehole. As Lili attempts to find the dog Hagen is on his own journey to find his owner and find his way home, see a little like HOMEWARD BOUND. As Hagen travels the streets of Budapest, Meeting a scrappy little dog on his travels, he finds himself on the run from dog catchers. He is eventually 'RESCUED' by a tramp who then sells him off to a man who sells dogs to dog fighting trainers. And this is where the comparisons to HOMEWARD BOUND ends. without going deeper into the rest of the plot lets just say stuff happens and Hagen, the words of Reggie in NUTTY PROFESSOR, "CAN'T TAKE THIS SHIT NO MORE". On the other side of the film Lili begins to break down, endlessly searching for Hagen as her relationship with her father crumbles and she turns to some unruly people gets into trouble and gains her relationship back with her father, your usual drama storyline you get my point.
WHITE GOD could be seen as a very slow burner, the film is a little longer than it probably should be and focuses a little to much on Lili and her problems but this is a small issue in an otherwise flawless film. It is BRUTAL, the dog fights were hard to watch but the director has promised viewers no dogs were harmed during filming. It is also so nice to see a film with killer rampaging animals that doesn't use CGI, and the dogs and the trainers should get some huge praise for this film.
WHITE GOD is a definite one to pick up if you can, i am sure you will not be disappointed.
