Critic Reviews for The Japanese Dog

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • While it lacks the richness of some of Ozu's masterworks, "The Japanese Dog" steers clear of sentimentality - an impressive feat, given that the title somewhat preciously refers to a toy dog.

    May 20, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Director Tudor Cristian Jurgiu demonstrates the same exacting sense of time and space as Puiu, Porumboiu, et al, and the rigorous style ameliorates the sentimentality of the script.

    September 18, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Jurgiu's film may be described as a Yasujiro Ozu drama done in the Romanian style. If only there was more to distinguish it beyond such extra-textual concerns.

    March 13, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • This tale might at first appear so negligible as to be non-existent until one sees that life is indeed here, tender and flatline as it most always turns out.

    May 30, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Debuts rarely arrive as composed as this, and "The Japanese Dog" confirms Jurgiu as a notable emerging talent.
