Great Aussie film - Hounds of Love review by TS

Spoiler Alert

Disturbing subject beautifully acted and filmed.

The two short films included on the DVD are also well worth watching.

Understated and superbly acted - Hounds of Love review by TR

Spoiler Alert

Apart from the slow-mo and repeated shots of passing planes (a bit pointless and a waste of screen time), I found this to be an undersrated gem, with great performances all round.

Tough watch...but worth it - Hounds of Love review by RW

Spoiler Alert

Being a parent of a girl around the same age as the victim in this film I found this quite a tough watch, that being said at the same time it was impossible to take my eyes of it.

Really well acted, it builds the tension and menace perfectly......you may find your sympathy switching from character to character as the film progresses, in fact it could be argued that the 3 main characters are all victims in their own way.

Being picky, a vital plot device is rather heavily signposted early on which comes as no surprise when it plays out and without giving too much away the sequence "borrows heavily" from other films, most notably one from the early 90's starring Anthony Hopkins....you'll know when you see it.

To summarise, given it's subject matter it's a film you'll endure more than enjoy, but it's an astonishing debut from it's writer and director Ben Young.
