Wiener-Dog, Todd Solondz, USA, 89', OV (English) with subtitles in Spanish
Wiener-Dog tells several stories featuring people who find their life inspired or changed by one particular dachshund, who seems to be spreading a certain kind of comfort and joy. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener. Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip picking up some depressed mariachis along the way. Wiener-Dog then encounters a floundering film professor, as well as an embittered elderly woman and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something more.
The North American screenwriter and director Todd Solondz (Newark, New Jersey, 1959), a reference of independent cinema, presents the comedy-drama Wiener Dog. Premiered at Sundance, the four tales making up the story star Keaton Nigel Cooke, Tracy Letts, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Kieran Culkin, Greta Gerwig and Zosia Mamet. Solondz, author of films including Welcome to the Dollhouse, has picked up awards at Cannes, Berlin and Venice and returns to Zabaltegi after presenting Happiness in 1998 and Storytelling in 2001.
