Dog's Dialogue

Colloque de chiens

Directed by Raúl Ruiz
France, 1977


The movie is a story told quickly through a series of stills, as in La jetée, with quavery synth music and dry French narration. It is interspersed with scenes of barking dogs, shot live-action with natural sound and no narration.

Critics reviews

In this hilarious film, the repetitions of certain cliché phrases in the off-screen commentary (e.g. in hospital and prison alike, ‘A moment later, as she/he arranges a bed, the young woman’s/man’s hands stray under a sheet … Their union is swift’) lend an additional circularity to Ruiz’s reductio ad absurdum, run-on melodramatic plot.
