The Zoological Existentialism of Domestic

If you look up the credits for Adrian Sitaru’s film Domestic in The Internet Movie Data Base the seven leading actors and actresses are listed first, followed by the animals that appear in the film. The listing indicates that the cat was played by “self” and the rabbit was played by “self” etc. It goes on to credit the whole menagerie of animals that appear in the film in the same way. This humorous gesture is consistent with how the film presents itself. Domestic is a comedy, but a comedy about existentialism as seen through domestic animals.
