Do you still muse on the adventures of Gustave H from THE GREAT BUDAPEST HOTEL, and your heart still recalls that urbane fox from FANTASTIC MR.FOX? Director Wes Anderson has always served fantasy in your platter and this time he is back with the unseen world of your favourite pet-DOG.

In this self-created Wes World, in which the story of dogs is presented as beautifully as human beings portray their own. “Isle of Dogs” is an animated movie set in a fantasy land of Japan and the obvious villains are the CATS, with clutching paws and hence making the life of dogs woeful. These cat-fancying villains of the future conspire to eradicate dogs.
It’s an earnest, heart-heavy question in a movie, by turns droll and melancholic, that can be easier to admire than to flat-out love. As he did in “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” Mr. Anderson tells his tale primarily using stop-motion animation, an artisanal process that creates the illusion of movement frame by frame with objects like puppets.
The story takes off in Megasaki City, where the thuggish Mayor Kobayashi (voiced by Kunichi Nomura), has banished dogs to an island garbage dump, beginning with Spots (Liev Schreiber), a weaponized guardian of, and loving companion to, Atari (Koyu Rankin), the mayor’s 12-year-old ward.
“Isle of Dogs” picks the grip as Atari searches for Spots, an audacious quest that leads him to a canine penal colony, a wasteland where mysteriously sick dogs fight over morsels gleaned from rancid, maggoty garbage. This resembles the sad yet true reality of human world. Story then focusses on one abandoned nuclear power plant and a perilous amusement park. This island has cubistic trash, gleaming pools of toxic liquid and walls of coloured glass bottles that glow like stained-glass windows on a sun-drenched morning.
Movie finds a flaw when the narrative of ATARI is not translated in English though we spend a lot of time with Atari. When the Japanese characters speak, their words are usually reduced to the decorative, at least for non-Japanese speakers.
Back in Megasaki City, when the mayor plots and scientists (Akira Ito and the one and only Yoko Ono) work on a cure for what ails the dogs, only some of what they say is conveyed. At the same time, high school journalists, led by a foreign-exchange student, Tracy (Greta Gerwig), investigate the mayor. Tracy speaks Japanese but mostly converse in English.
Trash Island is ugly, but its horrors are attenuated by their meticulous construction and visual splendour, and quickly contained. Mr. Anderson soon brings in his lead dogs, scene-stealers of every breed whose barks are rendered in English. There are purebreds and mutts and a silky show dog, Nutmeg, voiced with husky insouciance by, naturally, Scarlett Johansson. The top dogs, though, are an alpha male pack, a quintet of skinny throwaways voiced by Edward Norton (Rex), Bill Murray (Boss), Jeff Goldblum (Duke), Bob Balaban (King) and Bryan Cranston, whose Chief, a proud, violent stray (“I bite”), has wisely never depended on the unreliable kindness of humans.
“Isle of Dogs” is filled with exquisite illustrations, whimsical flourishes and nostalgic details that thicken the texture of its virtual world. Though at times the movie feels overworked, fussy but when an explosion darkens Trash Island it vehemently evokes the horrors of Japan’s past.
The dogs provide the emotion in this movie. They’re surprising, touching and thoroughly delightful. Many heart-wrenching scenes make the viewer cry like those where dogs are pity markers of abuse with matted fur, open wounds, painfully knobby legs and that anxious, mournful look of devotion that dogs retain for even the most unworthy humans.
"Isle of Dogs” is very much about storytelling — it’s narrated by Courtney B. Vance — which means that it’s about the past as much as the present or future.
