Dog Days

It's a stifling hot weekend in the suburbs of Vienna, somewhere between the autobahn and the exit roads, the hypermarkets and the new housing estates. During these "dog days" of summer, six interwoven stories unfold, revealing a world of disillusionment and lonely souls. With no respite from the oppressive heat of the day, the nights become fuelled with alcohol and steeped in seething aggression and abuse. Soon, tension builds to an uncontrollable level, and it is only a matter of time before lives become devastated. Ulrich Seidl's unique and extraordinary film takes an uncompromising look at the limits of existence, where life at its most vulnerable and intimate. Good days. Bad days... Dog Days!
