A New Breed of DVD !
The critically acclaimed heart-warming film Bombon El Perro, is released to buy and rent on DVD on 10th October 2005 by PathÈ Distribution Ltd. Directed by Carlos Sorin (Historias MÕnimas), and featuring the talented Gregorio the dog, Bombon will become a cherished addition to your DVD collection.
Juan Villegas (Juan Villegas) is a mild-mannered, middle-aged Patagonian man at a loss. After being fired from his job of twenty years as a petrol attendant, he lives with his daughter and her family in their over-crowded home. In an attempt to eke out a living he travels the countryside in his beat-up truck selling his beautiful handmade knives, with little success.
Finding a young woman stranded by the side of the road after her car has broken down, kind-hearted Juan offers to drive her the long distance home. As his reward, the lady of the house gives Juan a huge, pedigree Dogo Argentino; a hunting dog called Bombon.
Bombon’s unusual breed and massive size quickly attract attention, and his potential is spotted by dog trainer Walter Donado (Walter Donado). With Walter’s help, Juan starts to show Bombon at a few local shows and soon there is a request for his stud services. Juan’s financial hopes are dashed however, when it is discovered that Bombon is not exactly a lion in the kennel…
Bombon El Perro was nominated for eleven awards at The Argentinean Film Critics Association Awards, and won the Fibresci Award at the San Sebasti·n International Film Festival in 2004. Special features of the DVD include interviews with the crew and a “making of” featurette.
