Dogman crime thriller
Matteo Garrone, the master film-maker behind Gomorrah returns to the crime thriller genre with the tension-filled and relentlessly captivating Dogman.
Marcello (Marcello Fonte) is a small and gentle dog groomer who wants two things, to look after his dogs and take his daughter on exotic holidays. But to fund this lifestyle he runs a side business which has more unsavoury clientele and he soon finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of subjugation with Simone, a former violent boxer who terrorises the entire neighbourhood.
When Simone exploits him too much Marcello must make a crucial and potentially dangerous decision in order to regain his dignity.
Marcello Fonte won Best Actor at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
The film, in Italian with English subtitles, is showing at Spazju Kreattiv Cinema, today at 8.30pm.
