A review of Mascot Fur Life
I have just watched a film titled Mascot Fur Life (2016 German with English subtitles). To be honest I was a bit apprehensive to watch another “furry film/ documentary” – the last one I watched left me feeling betrayed and hollow inside. Anyway, on to this film.
The main character is a Lion named Willion Richards. Willion’s dream is to be the mascot of a soccer team. He trains very hard with the help of his coach Berk. Life is difficult for Willion, who struggles as a greeter in a large hardware store.
The film is professionally made, with excellent editing, good camera angles, great sets, and most scenes being shot on location. I’m sure none of us will argue that the costumes aren’t first rate!
Can Willion make the tryouts? Will this lion be happy, or forever doomed to work at a hardware store? Will he overcome despair and the prejudice against him? Can he even pay the rent for his flat?
I found this film to be most enjoyable; in fact, I highly recommend you see it!
It most assuredly receives a Five Paw rating from this old dog.
