5 out of 10 My Life As A Dog
Claire from Dublin, 23 Nov 2007
I know I'm at risk of sounding like an eejit here, but this film is just the cutest thing ever! Although it deals with heavy issues like the mother being sick & home life not being great, the characters in the glass factory and the things the kids get up to are spot on and hilarious. Total feelgood film. A must see!

4.5 out of 10 My Life As A Dog
Paul from Laois, 29 Jan 2008
Excellent. Pretty old at this stage but still great. About a young boy growing up in Sweden back in the 50's or thereabouts. His mother is very ill and he and brother sent away to homes or relatives.Told through the boys eyes...it is thoughtful, sad and very funny at same time. A real gem of a movie..

4.5 out of 10 Mitt Liv Som Hund
Tim from Cork, 25 Oct 2007
Typically Swedish, cold, strange, beautiful. A incredible portrayal of the difficulty of growing up, having to deal with embarasment in front of your peers and discovering the opposite sex. This is a film everybody should see...a classic.

What's it about....
Twelve-year-old Ingemar (Anton Glanzlius) has a life far too complex for a kid his age. His beloved mother (Anki Liden), once soft and loving, is now an angry invalid. His older brother (Manfred Serner) torments him daily. But there must be worse things in life, and Ingemar does not hesitate to obsess over them: people meeting freak accidents, for one, and Laika, the doomed Soviet space dog, for another. There is also his own pet dog, whose fate, it turns out, is as uncertain...
