Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Marcel Gisler directed this low-budget Swiss-French drama set during the early '70s in Zurich where 16-year-old Beni (Vincent Branchet) moves in with Minks musician Foegi (Frederic Andrau) after writing him a love letter. The self-absorbed Foegi soon cools, and his attitude toward Beni veers toward sadism. To pay for Foegi's drug habit, the obsessed Beni agrees to sleep with other men. Wearing a collar, Beni begins to fantasize that he's a dog. The film, which also has a Swiss-German version, was shown in 1998 at the Locarno Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival, and the Montreal World Film Festival.
