My Dog Stupid

Distrib Films presents indie comedy-drama My Dog Stupid—based on the 1985 novel West of Rome (Mon Chien Stupide) written by John Fante.

Henri is a middle-aged writer with fading inspiration. Feeling increasingly misunderstood by his family, he dreams of running away to start over again. Yet when he discovers a bad-mannered dog in his garden, he decides to adopt him, starting an unexpected friendship that inevitably upsets Henri’s family and neighbors. The bittersweet and moving comedy about love standing the test of time stars iconic real-life couple Charlotte Gainsbourg and Yvan Attal.
