Movie Info

Love sends a country-born city boy on a surreal search through the streets of modern-day Bangkok in Tears of the Black Tiger director Wisit Sasanatieng's adaptation of wife Koynuch's novel. Despite his grandmother's repeated warnings that he will grow a tail if he moves to the city, country bumpkin Pod (Mahasmut Bunyaraksh) sets his sights on Bangkok and soon lands an assembly-line job. When a factory mishap results in the loss of a finger and Pod opts instead for a job as a security guard, the city-stricken young man soon makes the acquaintance of obsessive/compulsive maid Jin (Sanftong Ket-U-Tong). When Jin is unreceptive to the lovelorn city newcomer's awkward advances, Pod sets out on an enchanting journey through the neon-soaked jungle of Bangkok in hopes of winning the heart of the oblivious object of his affection.

A hoot.

Dog does it's share of insanity, starting with digitally altered fuchsia coloured fields, to mountainous piles of plastic bottles and zombie taxi-bike drivers.

The good-natured exuberance of 'Citizen Dog' makes it a unique and extraordinary experience.

Audience Reviews for Citizen Dog

A surreal and comical love story about Bangkok's less significant people. Citizen Dog depicts their unending search of happiness in a rapidly changing environment; a world overflowing with dreams but void of love and understanding. You never know what you will see on the screen next, but it will almost certainly be unique, surprising and vividly colourful. Very rewarding film that's non-stop and highly enjoyable. Photobucket

Stylishly directed and original romantic comedy. A real treat.

A masterpiece. I generally avoid any type of love story, finding them to be trite, sappy or plain boring. This isn't any of those things for a second. A genuinely nice story with nice characters who try and do nice things. It's surreal moments and side stories add a massive dose of enjoyment to this already fantastic film. The colours are magnificent and the direction is superb. Reminded my wife and I a lot of Happiness or the Katakuris, about people simply forgetting to be happy when it's the obvious choice. Amazing.
