Movie Info

When Mariam, a young Tunisian woman, is raped by police officers after leaving a party, she is propelled into a harrowing night in which she must fight for her rights even though justice lies on the side of her tormentors. Employing impressive cinematic techniques and anchored by a tour-de-force performance from newcomer Mariam Al Ferjani, Kaouther Ben Hania's BEAUTY AND THE DOGS tells an urgent, unapologetic, and important story head-on. A rare, startling film that is a striking critique on a repressive society and a forcefully feminist rallying cry.

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

"Beauty and the Dogs" confronts issues rarely addressed so frankly - at least in this part of the world - with a story that is both powerful and important.

April 4, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Alas, this tale of a young rape victim further brutalized by officialdom never lives up to its potential.

April 3, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

As Mariam careens between hospitals and police stations, facing bureaucratic indifference and misogyny, the movie's fever pitch begins to feel at odds with its artistry.

Beauty and the Dogs plays like an actual, unending nightmare.

March 22, 2018 | Full Review…

A crescendo of humiliation, anxiety and abuse, "Beauty and the Dogs" plays like a horror movie where every choice is a Catch-22 and every door a trap.

March 22, 2018 | Full Review…

The form doesn't serve the story, and while the overall choreography of actors and camerawork is impressive, it never fully satisfies.
