Bonbon El Perro (or just El Perro in Argentina) is a story about a man and his dog. It is tempting to say that this sweet, heartwarming tale of Patagonia and the bond formed between a man and his show-dog hides a biting satire on the current Argentinean economic crisis, and the politics which drove this once proud nation to bankruptcy; the dog showing the dangers of neutered aggression whilst his owner, often clueless, struggles on with naught but goodwill as the world around him threatens to collapse.

It would be nice, but it just is not true. Bonbon is a sweet story about a man and his dog. And that’s it.
