Description:
Ten years after his career-defining Gomorrah, Matteo Garrone offers another representation of spiritual decay in a world run by criminals. Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actor.

In the outskirts suspended between metropolis and wilderness, where the only law seems to be that of the survival of the fittest, lives Marcello. The small and gentle man divides his days between work in his modest grooming salon for dogs, love for his daughter Alida, and an ambiguous relationship with Simoncino, a former boxer who terrorises the entire neighbourhood. Determined to reaffirm his dignity after an umpteenth oppression, Marcello will imagine revenge with an unexpected outcome.

"Dogman is not just a revenge film, even if revenge plays an important role, just as it is not merely a variation on the (eternal) theme of the struggle between the weak and the strong. It is instead a film that, though through an 'extreme' story, makes us face something that concerns us all: the consequences of the choices we make daily to survive, those yes's we say that lead us to being unable to say no." (Matteo Garrone)
