In the future, an outbreak of canine flu leads the mayor of a Japanese city to banish all dogs to an island that's a garbage dump. The outcasts must soon embark on an epic journey when a 12-year-old boy arrives on the island to find his beloved pet.
Review from the comment
The mind of Wes Anderson is something else. That remains a consistent throughout the man's career. Isle of Dogs is no different with a unique tale of a metropolis banishing man's best friend to an island after the animals come down with a vicious virus.But when the nephew of the mayor who issued the decree crashes on the island trying to find his dog, he is befriended by five canines who join his search.
Anderson and co-writers Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola have created a distinct setting that is all their own. The interactions between the various dogs with their own quirky personalities are a gem to watch. Voiced in that soft-delivery style Anderson likes by an all-star cast, the banter is funny and engaging and leading to a belief that any future Anderson animated entries are must watches.
