Matchless: New York in the 80s! Every animal does its thing and the dog named Dog is friends with a robot. Not just a film, a celebration for all ages.

Life hums, honks and howls in the trendy neighbourhood of the East Village. But Dog is lonely and passes the time watching TV and eating snacks – until he buys himself a robot. Everything is nicer when you’re together, and the summer zips by as if on roller skates. But soon the two have to part ways. Forever? The film, based on a well-known comic book, works perfectly well without dialogues. Its lucid images express themselves through a wealth of tremendous detail and irresistible wit. A story full of twists, a lovingly crafted trip back to the late 20th century and, above all, a moving and delightful homage to the value of friendships.


Pablo Berger, born in Bilbao in 1963, is best known for ›Blancanieves‹ (2012), a silent film in black and white that was selected as Spain’s Oscar entry. ›Robot Dreams‹ is his first animation. It premiered at Cannes and won one of the top prizes at Annecy.
