"Mesmerizing...whimsical and poignant."--Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times

"A dazzling expressionistic view of the world through the eyes of a stray dog...provides pleasure for all ages, but especially for dog lovers."--Peter Debruge, Variety

"Visually exquisite and peppered with vertiginous, sparkling surrealist sequences...a modern-day fairy tale that's both simple and subtle."--Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa

This is the story of Marona, a small lovable dog who passes from one master to another, taking us on a thrilling and miraculous road trip through life. The poetic and touching film follows an optimistic stray dog as she looks back on the human companions she has loved throughout her life. Featuring dazzlingly colorful, sweeping designs produced in part by acclaimed British artist Brecht Evens, MARONA'S FANTASTIC TALE is a life-affirming tale told with the patient, boundless love of a dog, and reminds us that happiness is a small thing.
