Jane Campion returns to the kind of mythic frontier landscape—pulsating with both freedom and menace—that she previously traversed in The Piano in order to plumb the masculine psyche in The Power of the Dog, set against the desolate plains of 1920s Montana and adapted by the filmmaker from Thomas Savage’s novel. After a sensitive widow (Kirsten Dunst) and her enigmatic, fiercely loving son (Kodi Smit-Mcphee) move in with her gentle new husband (Jesse Plemons), a tense battle of wills plays out between them and his brutish brother (Benedict Cumberbatch), whose frightening volatility conceals a secret torment, and whose capacity for tenderness, once reawakened, may offer him redemption or destruction.

  • unterhaltsam und gemächlich. Aber...

    Written on 21. November 2022 by GameMoviePortal.ch.

    Insgesamt ist THE POWER OF THE DOG sehr unterhaltsam, aber auch sehr zäh und trocken. Besonders in der ersten Filmhälfte. Die Handlung wird erst ab Akt 4 oder 5 interessant und das Ende kommt überraschend. Jedoch dauert der Film mit 128 Minuten zu lange und es bleiben zahlreiche Fragen unbeantwortet im Raum stehen, was sehr schade ist. Für mich bleibt es ein überbewertetes, aber gut gemachtes ländliches Drama, mit durchschnittlichem Wiedersehenswert.
