    Drama

    It seems like easy money: dogsitting an elderly rich lady's little French bulldog for the weekend. But this is where Marti, the protagonist in Italian director Fulvio Risoleo's adventurous THE DOG SNATCH, is wrong. Not only is her rate lowballed, the expensive accessory gets dognapped. Together with her girlfriend, Marti sets off on a wild pursuit. Then Risuleo swaps the perspective around: who is the peculiar thief anyway? Isn't everybody, including the pup, a victim of circumstance?
