European Union Film Festival 2021

Based on the bestselling 2019 book about the mistreatment of dogs, Gump: The Dog That Taught People How to Live is imaginatively adapted here as a film, telling Gump’s and other dogs’ stories from a canine perspective. Tossed in the garbage by a thoughtless owner, Gump is rescued by a kindly street person, Bedrich, who takes care of him, raising him from a puppy in his ramshackle trailer. Separated when Gump becomes an adult dog, both Bedrich and Gump search for one another to reunite. On his journey homeward, Gump encounters many other dogs as well as other dog owners, good and bad. Told in Gump’s voice (here played by acclaimed Czech actor Ivan Trojan), this is an impressive and entertaining tale of, yes, dogged determination.
