Winner of both the Palme Dog & Best Actor at Cannes, Italian director Matteo Garrone (GOMORRAH, TALE OF TALES, REALITY) delivers an intense, gripping, and atmospheric crime drama, about a cuddly everyman who's drawn into violence.
Marcello, a small and gentle dog groomer, finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of subjugation with Simone, a former violent boxer who terrorizes the entire neighborhood. In an effort to reaffirm his dignity, Marcello will submit to an unexpected act of vengeance.
