Inspired by a true-crime story, the Italian drama Dogman follows mild-mannered Marcello (Cannes award-winning best actor Marcello Fonte), who must juggle running his dog-grooming business and caring for his daughter while being coerced into the petty criminal schemes of a violent ex-boxer who terrorizes the seaside village. The bully’s abuse finally leads to a breaking point, and Marcello takes a stand through an act of vengeance.

“A brilliant, beguiling comic drama that takes on a tragic hue, Matteo Garrone’s modern-day fable is one of the best Italian films of recent times.” —The Independent

“A compelling opera of beta-male criminal martyrdom.” —The Guardian

“A powerful and endearing portrait of the human struggle for acceptance and courage. Garrone's fascinating streak continues.” —Hey U Guys
