Dictionnaires finnois. It is often said that the purpose of all art is to at as a mirror to life in ways that common observation cannot. In Dog Days, one finds that mirror shedding some brutal, uncompromising and deeply disturbing light on modern day life.

At the core of the film is a deep sense of loneliness. Seen through the lives of its characters, the film begins with an over-possessive boyfriend and his abusive relationship with his girlfriend.

The opening scenes of the film quickly set the tone for the rest of the film. The brawl in the strip-club and the highly disturbing scene of physical abuse in the car leave you in no doubt that this not a film will be apologetic or polite.

The rest of the film does not disappoint on this count. There is the old widower whose only companion, his pet dog, is poisoned.

The mentally unbalanced hitchhiker who meets with some rather tragic consequences. The security equipment salesman who spends endless hours trying to sell his wares, with little success.

The estranged couple that lives under the same roof, mourning the death of their little daughter but refusing to speak with each other. And finally, and possibly the most unhinging of all, the aging woman and her inexplicable love for her sadistic, violent and abusive man.

The film offers little in terms of relief from the dark and disturbing lives of its characters. Often described as highly pessimistic, the film chooses to focus on the extremities to make a larger point about the isolation of modern urban life and the redemption we seek from it.

And while I did not think this was a bad movie, I must say that I prefer his more recent works, especially his "Paradise" trilogy which is quite a thing of beauty.

Seidl's approach, however, is certainly visible in here too. His films always have a dark and slightly depressing take on love and especially sexuality.

You should also not be surprised to see graphic nudity in here, but I think it was working in the context as it simply belonged to the story.

It is basically the "Paradise" trilogy packed in one movie as we follow the fates and sexual identities of a whole bunch of people that have very loose connections to each other.

Nonetheless I have to say that I was not too well entertained while watching this film. It could have been shorter I think and still would not have lost and of its substantial message, but this way it felt a bit overblown.

And occasionally I also felt that the stories were just written in a way to be as controversial as possible and not really as means of telling a great movie.

The actors still do a good job, especially Maria Hofstätter once again. Finally, even German speakers may have problems with the thick Austrian accents in here, even if I found most of it was not too difficult to understand.

So just in case make sure you have subtitles. Overall, I was slightly underwhelmed by this film. Seidl has done better on several occasions.

This austrian film is rather slow-paced and deals with everyday life's madness. A collection of 6 parallel "stories" - more like incidents from the most miserable people'e everyday life.

It deeply reminded me of Michael Haneke's "71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance" , only this one is much more solid, more interesting and much more depressing.

Clearly, I film for the few people that can appreciate non-Hollywood event depiction and shooting and slow-pace at times.

Certainly, not a pleasant experience this is a true original as films must be. Austria is my least favourite European country and this film sums it up a treat.

Like Germany or Holland without the humour factor. This is Ulrich Seidl's best film to date. An experimental documentary-style study of depressed characters in a depressing suburb in Austria during a summer heatwave.

A thought-provoking film and its conclusions are pretty damning on the whole. But not for everyones viewing.

There is no plot and therefore the viewer is forced to continue to watch the six character stories or observations in order to see the point of it all.

Rather slow-paced, it deals with everyday life's madness. A collection of 6 parallel stories - more like incidents from the most miserable people'e everyday life.

It shows people humiliating other people and being cruel to other people. It shows the inability of people to communicate or talk with others.

It is also one of those films that you have to watch again and again just in case you missed something. Hundstage is an intentionally ugly study of life in a dreary suburb of Vienna.

I could be based in any other tidy and organised Austrian city. As observational cinema it is a little gem - and very challenging. So much better than the standard Hollywood carp we are all fed these days.

Not the sort of movie you expect to find for 99p in a medieval market town's Cash Converters! Firstly, I find it strange that many, including some reviewers here have the notion that Austria to be a genteel place.

They're human as everybody is everywhere, whether that be LA, London or Vienna. And didn't a certain A. Hitler come from Austria and more significantly, cinematic provocateur extraordinaire, Michael Haneke is Austrian and all his early movies were about and showing almost exactly the same kind of under-the-target unrest and spiralling human life of his fellow Austrians.

To be honest, whilst Haneke is much more the international film-maker the Oscars in , I believe? Uri's sardonic and often ridiculous scenarios are often achingly funny - such as the habitual hitch-hiker who soon gets spouting off crazy top ten lists, obviously not knowing what they mean top ten positions for lovemaking, for example, then, for most popular models of TVs.

Filmed in one long heat-wave with lots of frankly overweight Austrians removing their clothing as much as they can - and not just for sex - adds to the strangeness and won't appeal to everyone, but in the 34C heat and in and around our own homes, wouldn't we want to do this too?

There are quite long periods of fairly trivial talk about trivial things - but what might be trivial to the modern suburban Viennese, is actually strangely fascinating for us.

Then, there are quite long periods of sadistic cruelty - visiting Haneke's 'Funny Games' territory and as much enjoyment.

These, as they should be, are an uncomfortable watch and their inclusion might be questioned, but I would guess are as otherwise the whole exercise would be a quirky, near freak-show comedy.

There are simply too may elements to go into - and if you're not one who can handle a couple of minutes of actual hardcore orgy porn, filmed specially, not as a video on someone's TV, simply ignore this movie.

Over ten years have passed since this movie came out and time and viewing habits and expectations have obviously lessened many of the potential shock elements, now.

Indeed, there's almost nothing new here, that hasn't been said, now. That aside, no genre is seemingly unique now and Dog Days still appeals due to its fresh fizz and liberal attitudes.

It still remains a unique viewing experience and for the liberally minded adult, has much to offer as both an offbeat social statement as well as entertainment.

Mancic 2 December The problem I find with this title is that I am not sure if the director is trying to produce a documentary or movie.

A blend of the two genres just doesn't work and that leaves the whole thing hung in the middle of nowhere.

This is more so as the director has picked the most extremes of what is supposed to be happening around our everyday life making it an unconvincing documentary.

In either case, what is the moral or the message which the director is trying to convey to the audience?

That around us there are people who ill-treat others who are willing to be ill-treated? That there are many crazy lunatics around us? Every country which has a working film industry has some sane and maybe some insane artist which make movies that you can only completely understand when you're a part of this country.

I guess Hundstage is such a movie. You see the lowest level of Austria's society, dirty, disturbed, weird, hateful.

But they still have enough money so they can afford tuned cars and big houses. And they are definitely doing a lot of strange things here which maybe seems for them 'normal' because they're doing it through their whole life.

From a normal human viewpoint you can now easily follow the movie and be disgusted or fascinated and watch a fine piece of Austria's art movies.

But if you LIVE here and you know the people you see the characters in Hundstage as the tumor of the society.

A society that is going more insane from day to day, creating their own rules that nobody else can understand, cave the social system from within.

And you SEE the people. Sitting in the park, standing at the opposite street corner, queuing in the same line. Maybe you meet 'em in a bar or a disco you may visit.

Maybe you even work with them in your job or they are living next to your house. You start to hate them without exactly knowing why. You'll try to get away - but you cannot.

Maybe you'll end up like them. But it seems 'normal' for you because you're doing it through your whole life now Life isn't so bright though Austria is one of the richest countries in the world.

It has beautiful people There are a lot of hard working persons trying their best A very pessimistic movie. MichaelMargetis 21 November It's nothing brilliant, groundbreaking or innovative, but 'Dog Days' is for some reason an extremely fascinating character study.

It's an Austrian film following the lives of several depressed, deranged and annoying people and their abusive relationships with each other.

It's disturbing, yet very well-acted and it's interesting to watch the crazy little things these characters do.

Certainly not for the weak-hearted, this highly pessimistic film offers no conclusion or revelation at the end, we just see the lives of these sordid individuals over the course of two days.

Grade: B. I have to say Hundstage is an art film rather than an entertainment film, so the majority of the viewers wouldn't have the level of "maturity" to reach in to its delightful side.

Kind of like Tarkovsky films, but different in a way. I, myself, can't say I had a lot of fun watching it. Hundstage sticks a finger right into your brain and scratches your mind all over.

You can't simply sit back and watch it, you'll be using exclamations or looking with eyes wide open throughout the film.

A film that's similar to this in style is Nachtgestalten, but it was considerably better, and way less violent. This one for instance, is not for children or those who are mentally tender or bad-tempered.

Most viewers would most likely give either a 10 or a 1 to this film. I give it a 9 because I've seen the multiple-stories-in-one-film phenomenon in another film and it was better.

But this one's an outstanding piece on its own. Worth watching, but get ready to see something disturbing. Earlier today I got into an argument on why so many people complain about modern films in which I encountered a curious statement: "the character development in newer movies just isn't nearly as good or interesting as it used to be.

I normally have a very high tolerance for movies, no matter how dull or pointless I find them ranging from good, long ones like Andrei Rublev and Dogville, to ones I've considered painful to sit through a la Alpha Dog and Wild Wild West.

I shut this movie off 45 minutes in, which is 30 minutes more than I actually should have. I wasn't interested in any of the characters whatsoever and found nothing substantial beyond a thin veil of unfocused pessimism.

In an attempt to say something about the dregs of society, this film too easily falls into being self-indulgent, trite, and exploitative in a very sincere sense.

Granted, I've seen many disturbing movies on the same subject, but there are so many better films out there about depressing, pathetic people Happiness, Gummo, Kids, Salo, Storytelling, Irreversible that actually contain characters of great emotional depth and personality.

Dog Days had none more than an eighth grader's distaste for society, choosing to ignore any true intelligence about the way people actually are, and instead choosing to be a dull, awful, and hopelessly unoriginal attempt at a work of "art.

Frankensteinmonster 22 February I once promised never to walk out of any film a personal policy that made me suffer through the most different kinds of dreck, such as Rambo 3, Baise Moi, Deep Impact - but Mr.

Seidl almost succeeded. Hundstage was a truly awful experience. Anyone who sees this movie will think that Austrians are a miserable, pathetic bunch of retards.

It shows a world where love and humanity don't exist, a world where people humiliate each other only for one reason - to distract from their own miserable existence.

By choosing a documentary-like style with non-professional actors most of them look like straight from the imagination of Austrian shock-cartoonist Deix director Seidl wants to make us believe that this is real life in Austrian European?

The viewer is confronted with depictions of sex orgies, violence against women and handicapped people, madness and degradation. But this isn't social criticism.

This is just pure shock without any aesthetic value. Instead you get bad acting, bad cinematography, bad filmmaking. If anybody needs a film like this to realize that there are things wrong in our society then this person must have walked through life with closed eyes.

This is pseudo-social criticism with a sledge hammer. And it looks down on people in a disgustingly condescending way.

It shows ugly people - that is not the reason why I hate it. But it depicts average people in an ugly, misanthropic way.

And this is why this film is truly despicable. This film is in no way entertainment but more of a look deep into the depths of the darkest side of human behaviour.

Loosely linking a half a dozen stories of the worst kind of depravities, perverted sex, greed, violence and intolerance. All the action is played out over a few very hot and sticky days during a heatwave in Vienna and the heat is maybe responsible for some of the anger and hate in the film.

For me the treatment of the retarded girl by the security equipment salesman was about the worst episode, closely followed by the scenes of drunkenness and perversity in the 'slags' flat.

You will be gripped and I hope horrified by this film. I hated it but I felt compelled to see it through. I rented this the uncut version with hardcore scenes intact with the thought that it might offer some insight into the daily lives of the people of this suburban neighborhood.

I found instead just rather pointless montages of bland characters without any rhyme or reason. It's acted nicely and there is nothing technically wrong with the film it just isn't interesting really.

We wander from one scene to another some brutal and vile and some just dull. I'm not sure what the director was trying to go for but short cuts or magnolia its not.

I did not feel disgusted really but just disappointed in the lack of purpose the film had. Being an Austrian myself this has been a straight knock in my face.

This movie tells a story about how misled people who suffer from lack of education or bad company try to survive and live in a world of redundancy and boring horizons.

A girl who is treated like a whore by her super-jealous boyfriend and still keeps coming back , a female teacher who discovers her masochism by putting the life of her super-cruel "lover" on the line, an old couple who has an almost mathematical daily cycle she is the "official replacement" of his ex wife , a couple that has just divorced and has the ex husband suffer under the acts of his former wife obviously having a relationship with her masseuse and finally a crazy hitchhiker who asks her drivers the most unusual questions and stretches their nerves by just being super-annoying.

After having seen it you feel almost nothing.

Grade: B. Funny, yes. Shocking, yes. To all those reviewers harping on about lack of plot, then surely this is to miss the point. Seidl draws on his documentary background and indeed blends the this with the fictional elements.

Do we really need the narrative signposts that we are force-fed in films. Life is not that black and white.

I cannot understand the constant desire for fast paced cutting. Go and watch a commercial if you need to but leave the rest of us with well made, insightful films that speak about the bigger issues in life.

This is a marvellous film that is disturbing and shocking but not in a gratuitous manner. I think it is in the tiny minutiae of life that these moments are revealed.

I found the moment when the couple visit the grave and when the old woman does the striptease to be very moving.

You need to look underneath the surface of the characters to see what makes them tick and Seidl has done this.

As a result we have complex characters that seem too real for some viewers perhaps to stomach. I should stop defending the film.
