In the opening scene of "The Lobster" there is this woman driving in the countryside. She stops somewhere in the middle of a pasture and then she shoots a donkey dead. Why?
Transforming people into animals is a very important aspect of this movie, so I suppose the donkey was some ex-human enemy/husband/father/... of her. However, I see no connection to the main plot and the rest of the movie. Is there any? Did I miss something? Who is the woman? Who is the donkey? Or is it just a shocking introduction with no meaning?
