Wes Anderson follows up The Grand Budapest Hotel with a stop-motion animation set on a dystopian Japanese island to which 750,000 diseased dogs have been banished, following an outbreak of dog flu.
The films’ graphic detailing of a Japan, twenty years in the future ruled by a tyrannical dog-hating cat-stroking Mayor, provides the backdrop for the adventure. Kobayashi’s son, Atari, is looking for Spots – his own dog who has been snatched from him and is now known as ‘dog zero’ – for being the first one dumped on Trash Island.
The cast have plenty of canine treats to get their teeth into: Harvey Keitel as the head of a rumoured cannibal clan, Scarlett Johansson as a show dog and Anjelica as a ‘mute poodle’ among them.
Yes, Isle of Dogs is an animation but not really one for the kids. And definitely not one for cats. Cats will hate it.
“If you’re looking for cute, cuddly Wes Anderson, you’re barking up the wrong tree” Telegraph ****
“Anderson is clearly a dog lover himself and his film is bound to appeal to anyone who shares his passion. All in all, the film is quite a treat.” Independent
