Five years after his SHOCK TREATMENT stunned European audiences, cult fantastique writer/director Alain Jessua delivered this startling thriller that remains the most controversial and prescient film of his career: In a corporate suburb outside Paris, the community’s new doctor discovers its leading citizens all get their dogs from a wealthy, charismatic trainer (an unsettling performance by Oscar® nominee Gérard Depardieu) – dogs that have a ferocious appetite for immigrants, rowdy youths, people of color and anyone who challenges the status quo. Victor Lanoux (COUSIN, COUSINE), Nicole Calfan (THE BURGLARS) and Fanny Ardant (CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS) co-star in “one of the most unexpected and original French films of the ‘70s” (DVDFr.com), now scanned in 2K from the interpositive for the first time in America.
