    Subject

    When Michèle and I now think of some of the scenes in "Doggy Bag," what we both find unsettling is how much of ourselves we see in them. We put a lot of our own obsessions and hang-ups into the film – nothing unusual in that, true, but what we see still puzzles us. Our interest in psychoanalysis, for instance: in the film, Jeanne uses the dog to settle a few scores, whereas Michèle and I used the film. OK, we wrote a comedy, but attentive spectators should be able to see the ritual or psychoanalytical tale underneath.
