family film

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2015.

Inspired by true events, Paw is a story about a rescue dog and his equally gifted trainer, who together overcome both internal and external obstacles to achieve international fame, success, and fulfillment. Zoli, a tram engineer, comes to see the curative role his volunteer rescue work plays in his desire to help others. Paw’s gift for search and rescue work, under the gifted guidance of Zoli’s training, brings them both to the calling and accomplishments that will define them both: as a rescue team. Zoli’s further challenge is to open his heart to Eszter, whom he loves, but almost loses.

Paw is not an action-driven film; it is a sweet, emotional striptease by ordinary people who achieve heroic levels, day by day. The use of brief animated sequences gives the film a light, humorous and otherworldly touch.
