Heartwarming / The Plague Dogs

  • As sad as the film's ending is there are some oddly heartwarming undertones. Not just the implication in the end credits song that the Dogs have found peace in death but Rowf's final lines have some kind of heartwarming implications too; either that Rowf is willing to face the death that he feared so much as long as his friend doesn't die alone or that one of if not the most pessimistic characters in the whole film has learned to feel hope again, even when all seems lost.
    Rowf: "We must be, near the island".
    Rowf: "There is. There! Can't you see it? Our island! Just stay with me. I'll get you there".
