What a bizarre movie! It took me a couple of sittings to watch. I was eventually drawn into the dream-like theme. Afterwards, I was filled with thoughts on what happens to our beloved pets when they leave us. I enjoyed the art and tried to understand the meaning behind some of it. It was like a musical, poetic tour of dogs and what they mean to us, in an art museum.

This is the most unsentimental movie about grief that you will ever see. Story-telling, self, and love are the themes she discusses, while Lou Reed is allowed to enter the film only at the very end, obliquely. So beautiful and thought-provoking. I particularly love how the dog--so often used as the ultimate symbol of unconditional, intensely sentimental love--is represented by many different dogs, visually destabilizing that fixed sign.

The perfect description of dreams and reality ... who knows what is what ? It is what each of us wanted our existence to be. Love is the best truth, worth to keep and it will go for ever.
This is a Lovely film. LOVE IT

This movie is like an artistic style, different than a "regular" movie or documentary. Wasn't quite what i expected, and i'm still kind of confused what exactly what it was about, but i found myself glued to my couch snuggled in my blanket watching. It is peacefully narrated and the scenes are like mindfulness sort of, so i think that helped relax me too stay tuned and optimistic to figure out what exactly i was watching. I think it's a good movie , i can't say it could have been better or worse because it is a different type. Hope this comment helps
