Movie Info

Joseph R. Ackerley's semiautobiographical novel, set in sexually suppressive 1950s London, is brought to the screen in tragicomic fashion. The film's bone of contention is a German shepherd, owned by convicted felon Gary Oldman. A bitter "custody battle" ensues over the dog, involving Oldman's parents, his wife, and his homosexual lover Alan Bates. This sound likes stuff which farce is made of, but the characters and situations are all too real and recognizable. Besides, that has to be the most loveable German shepherd ever recorded on film.more
