Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed and controverisal filmmaker Ulrich Seidl (Dog Days, Jesus You Know) explores the underbelly of modern life with two surreal odysseys not easily forgotten. Darkly comical and provocatively disturbing, Animal Love offers a glimpse into the strange and eccentric world of lonely animal lovers on the fringes of society. Meticulously shot in Diane Arbus fasion, Seidl’s protagonists sublimate their emotional needs and desires for intimacy through their four-legged friends.

animal love is an impressive example of social documentary, where the border between who is behind the camera and who is in front of it seems to disappear. At one point it becomes a sort of hypnotic trip.

Yes... I said it, love for animals in a demented way!!

I selected this documentary because I believed it to be normal folks just giving that ever-loving attention to their pets. How wrong I was, and when I thought it would be a different foreign film documentary, it proved to be different all right! The German documentary features the people from the bowels of society, the desperate, pathetic rejected and lost souls with obsessive, freakish and bizarre behavior with their pets.

The documentary does not tell you what is going on, nor does it explain anything at all. You are to assume that pet ownership takes all kinds.
The documentary is low-budget, with depressing people in depressing areas and depressing situations. The crew follows a homeless loser in love and he takes on a rabbit for company, he can't take care of himself, but begs money for the rabbit. He later ....omg... darts his tongue into that of a dog! Two men living together become obsessed with a dog, can't train him correctly, can't take on society, but their life is this dog.

One homely woman's husband has left her, and she wishes him dead. She takes way too much comfort in the dog. And this film includes footage of women who at some time replace men in their lives with dogs and I do not have to tell you what that is about, look up zoophilia.

Rabbits are put at the bedside of elderly. Not sure if anyone is comforted here. There are long shots of nothingness, people just staring for a lengthy time. There is nudity, and one couple who advertise for swinging, have sex. A man makes a sex call and parades around in his undies.

This is about as bizarre as one can get with pet obsession.
