Zac and PC PAWS

Paws is an Australian movie that is part drama, part comedy and part dog play.

Zac inherited an arsenal of computer equipment from his Dad who passed away three years ago. At the beginning of the film his family (his mother, Amy, his stepfather, Stephen and his small sister Binky) moved from Melbourne to the inner Sydney suburb of Glebe.

When Alex was killed by a criminal (Anja), his last command to his dog, PC, was to take a computer diskette to their friend Susie (Zac's next door neighbour). PC was hit by a car and rescued by Zac's family who decide to keep him.

Now, Zac and PC, who talks using a computer, must keep the diskette away from Anja and solve its puzzle to find Alex's hidden money which she is also after.


You'll like it, it's funny. It's more like a cartoon than real life: the violent parts always have a funny side to them. The difference between comedy and drama is that the violence is not frightening because you know that there is something hilarious coming soon.

The best thing in Paws is seeing the criminal get what she deserves in the end.

A good film, I'd like to see it again.
