The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet
Ana Katz
Argentina 2020
73 min

V'21

In THE DOG WHO WOULDN’T BE QUIET director Ana Katz foretells the pandemic with great humor and also postulates that life will prevail after not too long. The fantastical twist of this comedy arrives in the final act and everything has already occurred without our even noticing when it eventually does so.
Sebastian, a typical middle-class young Argentinian man, loses his job as a designer in a company because of his love for his dog. Now he has to figure out how to make a living. Katz portrays the current lack of job security, the impoverishment of the Argentine middle class, possible alternative forms of economy, and the mysterious logic of affections that divides all relationships.
All of this is achieved in admirable fashion via framing, the use of narrative ellipses, always signposted by the changing haircuts of the main character, the insertion of two animated sequences, and a deep love for the characters, including the dogs. In the cinema of Katz, chance and absurdity are what give order to the world, but this philosophical intuition is not mined for anguish nor cynicism, but rather vitality and comedy. (Roger Koza)
