    EO is a very cute and soulful donkey and everything, but the film reminds me of why I don't like to watch movies centered on animals. If the film is older, or not that old depending on the country of origin, you just don't know how the animals were actually treated. Even in this case, where we're told at the end that no animals were harmed, you're still watching animals potentially be harmed, or suffering from simulated harm. EO is a circus animal, separated from his loving training on the grounds that he's being exploited, but as he walks Europe as a kind of equine Forrest Gump, we wonder if he isn't being exploited no matter what - as a beast of burden, to score political points, heck, isn't using animals in a film just as exploitative? - and just what this says about humanity's relationship with even domesticated nature. Speaking of nature, the film is often gorgeous, set in interesting landscapes and beautiful skies. And while the notion of an animal film shot from the animal's perspective is a worthy one, I'm not sure EO plays by its own rules. The donkey's intersection with various humans isn't very satisfying and the statement that even the best person (from EO's perspective) is pretty terrible is trite. To prove that point, we move away from the animal's point of view and see things it doesn't, but are no more comprehensible. In particular, what is up with the whole Isabelle Huppert sequence? A big downer considering how much empathy you're made to feel with the donkey. 1 year 2 months ago
