This will contain some spoilers, but this information needs to be known before you spend your money on this film. The Pet could have been a nice little film about a power exchange alternative lifestyle, even as unlikely as 24/7 animal/pet play may be. It had enough budget and was shot well enough. Even the actors were good enough(some were distinctly better than others though). Pierre Dulat as Philip was quite good. Andrea Edmondson as Mary/GG was also decent enough.
My BIG problem with the film is that the makers promoted it as a "true" look into a caring, power exchange alternate lifestyle. The maker's website description is misleading as is the film's trailer. They tell you the main characters are intruded upon by international slavers. In fact, the main characters (except for Mary/GG) are all business partners and friends in a kidnapping/murdering syndicate that deals in selling body parts and slave laborers. Philip's wish that Mary/GG not be sold as such is purely his personal wish. So, once again a chance to make a film showing the beauty of a loving dominant/submissive relationship is turned into just another demonization of the BDSM community. By this depiction, you are either crazy, evil or just plain stupid to participate in such a lifestyle. Yet, the makers promote this film as being about a loving consensual relationship. Its really just an exploitation film and
when you break down the ridiculous plot, there really is not much left to
like. One example of this plot is after a couple weeks of training, having your Pet be devoid of nearly all cognitive function(they do say that clearly). So, we have people talking about murdering their Pets and selling the organs right in front of them with no reaction. Oh, come on!

This movie is being promoted in its trailer and on its website as having something to do with the BDSM and consensual Master/slave relationships practiced by some in this community. In fact it is a piece of total BS that is about kidnapping women, selling them, killing them and selling their body parts. The plot makes no sense. All the details about such relationships are wrong. The presentation of "training" and its results are laughable. If you want to watch a couple of naked women running around and being treated like dogs for part of the movie, then it may be worthwhile, but unlike the opinion of some others here, this movie has nothing to do with anything that happens in the real world. And the acting, editing, etc. are not even B movie quality.

I looked forward to this movie's release, especially after seeing the trailers. In short, it is terrible in about every way imaginable. You could steer an aircraft carrier through the holes in the plot, and the acting was just awful.

Probably worse than the money I wasted on this is the black-eye it gives to BDSM. There is not a character in the film who could not be considered quite insane. This is not even a love story. It's a strange story about bizarre people, all of whom manage to be inept human beings with no moral bearing. All that and it manages to be boring too.

Another bad movie NOT about bdsm but about the white slave world market and not consensual lifestyle like it was touted to be in the community. DO NOT BUY THIS . Once again these movie idiots are making lifestyle people out to be murderers or nutcases.

Steve's career as a photojournalist has given him sight of the realities of slavery. His photography reflects the harshness of brutal reality. It is no surprise that he seems to have not got a firm handle on the emotions of the lifestylers that chose this way of life. The lack of interpersonal emotion and, to a degree, the wooden acting can, I believe, be placed at the door of Steve's experiences. The dialogue should have been co-written as the conversation sequences were wrong and felt implausible and unreal and that problem should have been caught. The whole project felt rushed and has foot in neither the world of the lifestyler or the enforced slave.

Great locations, quality cinematography and the snow scene was enjoyable, but I wouldn't say that this represents many realities. The conflict scenes were not choreographed well, nor confrontational tension handled very well at all. Video effects and tension music had to be employed to convey any impact and this gave the project a very rushed feel. Also, people who are branded usually scream an awful lot more, straight from the heart, and usually pass out with the level of pain; that branch in her mouth would have been bitten in two - one example of taking a powerful situation to emphasise the impact of the circumstances and then only pawing at it half heartedly.

The overall timing and pace of the sequences just felt completely wrong. Sections where I was looking to invest my emotions were rushed or glossed over, and others which didn't have that much impact beyond sexual tittilation felt dragged out. In short, they had a wonderful opportunity but I felt they squandered it and I felt cheated as a result.

This was a gift to someone special last year, and I was thrilled to have it delivered before the holidays; we were both eagerly anticipating seeing it after having viewed its very intriguing trailer on the web. I can report that the actual film has a plot that is convoluted and crippled with an absence of logic. This effort tries to be many things, including being a lifestyle film with some thrill components, a morality tale, and, partly, a film that dips slightly into the psychological exploration of D/s. The result is a nicely photographed steaming pile of celluloid filled with bad acting and really bad lines that was incredibly disappointing to see. Once the credits rolled, I knew I had just experienced the worst film I had ever seen, and I felt utterly embarrassed that I had given it as a gift. I feel an obligation to caution any potential viewers: save your money and do not buy this dvd!
