Wiener-Dog (2016)

2016 | USA | Todd Solondz | ★★★★★

Polarising American film-maker Todd Solondz's cruelly funny yet strangely thoughtful and moving Wiener-Dog is an episodic black comedy filled with wonderful performances, unforgettable characters, striking images, and outrageous turns of event.

---

"Comedy written and directed by Todd Solondz which follows a loveable Dachshund as it travels around the country, changing the lives of a number of very different owners along the way. After setting off on a road trip with veterinary assistant Dawn Wiener (Greta Gerwig), the dog then encounters young cancer survivor Remi (Keaton Nigel Cooke), failing film professor Dave Schmerz (Danny DeVito) and troubled grandmother Nana (Ellen Burstyn)."
