DOGMAN
2018, Magnolia Pictures, 102 min, Italy/France, Dir: Matteo Garrone

This riveting underworld drama from Matteo Garrone (GOMORRAH) centers on Marcello (Cannes Best Actor winner Marcello Fonte), a humble dog groomer, a loving single father and, to make ends meet, a petty coke dealer. Among his customers is Simone (Edoardo Pesce), a thug who terrorizes his run-down Naples neighborhood - and wants Marcello’s help to commit a robbery. A fable of good and evil colored by dark humor and surreal touches, DOGMAN earned eight Nastro d'Argento awards. “DOGMAN unfolds its relatively straightforward story with both thrilling style and serious moral force: it’s a sensation judged on either bark or bite.” - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph.
