Danny the Dog (Odtrhnutý z reťaze) - Action by Louis Leterrier. French action master Luc Besson produced and wrote this film about Danny (Jet Li), a childlike man whose talent for fighting has been exploited by his greedy "owner" Bart (Bob Hoskins). When Danny is suddenly left on his own, he meets blind pianist Sam (Morgan Freeman), who shows him what being treated like a human - and not a dog - actually means.
