"My Life as a Dog"
Directed by Lasse Hallstrom
Sent off to a rural
village while his ill mother recuperates, young Ingermar finds unexpected adventure with
the town's warmhearted eccentrics in this bright and funny tale of one boy's special year.
More than just a movie, this film was a phenomenon that captured the hearts of
America. Swedish with English subtitles.
"This film is the story of a small boy whose soul was saved by an uncle, a little girl and a community who seemed to appreciate the value of a few
eccentrics. It is the story of a miracle in everyday life. I think it would be a valuable film to give to some young person who might be having a difficult time in life. It is a story of hope in a sad world."
"Description is Misleading - I was very misled by the copy on the Video box. This movie really isn't about a young boy's
innocent ways...I expected 'My Life As A Dog'...what i got was far darker. I still enjoyed the film even though ultimately
it left me feeling disturbed. I give it a 7/10."
