Dog, living in a fictional version of 1980s Manhattan, is done with his lonely life and buys a robot. The two quickly become best friends, until Dog has to leave his robot behind at the beach one day. Will these buddies ever see each other again? This animated film from Pablo Berger doesn’t contain any dialogue, but does contain a lot of humor, pop culture references, personality and friendship. Take a moment to leave all the discussions about AI and the imitation of humanity for what they are, and enjoy the genuine connection between a dog and his dearest robot friend.
