  • "...beautiful cinematography, featuring Romania masquerading as Poland, and a pair of excellent lead performances by Katherine Fogler and Douglas Nyback and their great chemistry make it a compelling watch and one of the better Canadian film offerings."
    Keith Noakes, Keith Loves Movies
  • "The Dancing Dogs of Dombrova is a crowd-pleaser filled with wit and genuine emotion. You will love these characters flaws and all."
    Courtney Small, Cinema Axis
  • "Director Zack Bernbaum ( Cold Deck and And Now a Word from Our Sponsor) does a terrific job at giving life to the screenplay. The injections of humour help pace this film out and make it a joy to watch. Even the music has a light-hearted flavour, which gave me a smile."
    Ed Sum, Otaku No Culture
  • "Featuring an engaging cast and a tightly written script, Dancing Dogs is a dark and dramatic comedy that has moments which almost achieve a Coen Brothers level of ridiculousness (in the best of ways). "
    Steve Norton, ScreenFish
  • "[T]he film succeeds at telling a strange tale of family duty and forgiveness."
