Families who are having a difficult time accepting their dog getting older and losing its energy. As their place is selected as a redevelopment area, the families move, but the old dog barks as if it is reluctant to leave its old house. In the end, they all move to the house of the eldest son. Not long after, however, the dog separates itself from the family and goes back to the old house to live as an abandoned dog. Despite seeing the shabby appearance of the old dog, the families ignored the dog, and soon they become used to this uncomfortable feeling. On a rainy day, the second brother sees the old dog lying on its deathbed. Given the situation where it is difficult to evade or avoid, the brothers reluctantly take turns in taking care of the old dog.

Program Note

The neighborhood has been designated as a redevelopment area, but the pet Mimi does not want to leave. Although the three brothers are sorry to see Mimi get quickly and dramatically old, they are also annoyed by her. Under the first snow of the year, Mimi returns to the old crumbled house. The biggest virtue of An Old Dog is “sentiment”. The film asks us what we have forgotten in this era where the old houses are crumbed to raise house prices on the pretext of redevelopment. That is why Mimi returning to her old house is more of a restoration of a precious value. The sentimental drawing style is just as touching as the story itself.
