Baxter (1989, FRA) C-82m. ** D: Jérôme Boivin. Starring Lise Delamare, Jean Mercure, Jacques Spiesser, Catherine Ferran, Jean-Paul Roussillon, Sabrina Leurquin. A movie with a quite daring premise: the dog (a pitbull terrier) is the main character, who narrates the film, giving us his life story as he is passed on from owner to owner. Some interesting observations of the human-dog relationship are offered, but plot is underdeveloped and mostly pointless.
