What is it?
The 2014 Danish drama mystery horror film When Animals Dream (Når Dyrene Drømmer) that was directed by the director Jonas Alexander Arnby and stars the actor Lars Mikkelsen and the actress Sonia Suhl.
What is it about?
This is how the IMDb describes this film:
16-year old Marie lives on a small island with her seriously ill mother and her father, who takes care of the family.
But suddenly mysterious deaths happen and Marie can feel something strange happening to her body.
My brother GC and I watched this film a year or two ago, and this is what my brother GC had to say about this film:
*Possible Spoiler(s) Warning*
I saw it.
It’s basically like that movie “Let The Right One In” with a werewolf instead of a vampire and it focuses on the monster and instead of a human.
It wasn’t a terrible movie, but there were some aspects I didn’t like about it.
First of all..just like that Let The Right One In movie..this was too slow and didn’t show or explain enough to help you understand what had happened or what was going on.
Second..the werewolf design.
Really weak and underwhelming.
They basically did some makeup and added fangs and claws.
She didn’t get taller, more muscular, or anything like that.
I really don’t like that kind of werewolf design.
I like certain werewolf designs that are a bit more human-like that have less fur and more skin showing like this:
But when the werewolf just looks like someone with more hair on their face and hands, yellow eyes, fangs, and claws, like this:
That is when they lose me.
It doesn’t make much sense.
“When Animals Dream”?
First of all..this movie doesn’t seem like it has anything to do with dreams or anything like that.
Second..it seems pretty clear that this girl is a werewolf.
She is not an animal.
She is a monster.
She even says she is a monster or she is turning into a monster.
She is not some regular animal like a wolf or something.
This isn’t Wolf’s Rain.
She is a mythological creäture.
The title should have been something like ‘The Monster’s Secret” or something.
