Movie Info

A dramatic story about a houseful of youth with no apparent purpose in life, this film features pounding rock music and attitude problems galore. The main setting is a rundown dwelling in an impoverished district near Melbourne, Australia, where conversations ebb, flow, and overlap much like the lives of the people who live there. Strangers also wander in and out of the premises as life continues, for some, more through an indestructible momentum than any internal driving force. Some of the

A funny, elegiac, uplifting, and deliciously different movie.

The background is energetic; too bad the foreground is just as chaotic.

Richard Lowenstein seems as bored with the proceedings as most spectators are likely to be.

Energetic, youthful, frequently hilarious and ultimately so sad, Dogs in Space is an Australian counter-culture classic.

Few films connect with the punk experience like Dogs In Space, a slice of life in Seventies Melbourne that brings together all the major concerns of its era.

An inspired, unremittingly entertaining musical....a bit of timeless pop for your player

This loose, even shallow, structure is a deliberate strategy.

Audience Reviews for Dogs in Space

Somehow managed to never see this before, thought it was time I checked it out.
Story (and I use that word lightly) is about a group of young people living in a share house (maybe I mean squat, since no one actually pays rent).
It just flows along until a tragedy at the end. No huge story to it.
I wouldn't say it is fantastic, but I can see why those who grew up with it would love it.
Never really liked Michael hutchence or inxs, so that wasn't a factor for me.
