Barking Dogs Never Bite

A FILM BY Joon-ho Bong

Beautifully directed and darkly funny.
Highly recommended.
It's an impressive debut.
-Jay Seaver, eFILMCRITIC


The debut that marked the arrival of a modern master, Barking Dogs Never Bite is critically acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho's (The Host) snappy black comedy about a downtrodden young man who's being assailed by both man and beast. His pregnant wife treats him like dirt, and his dreams of becoming a professor have just been squashed by a crooked dean. To top it all off, one of the pesky dogs in his apartment building won't stop its incessant barking! Something's got to give, so he decides to get rid of the furry nuisance once and for all -- or so he thinks.
