Based on a true crime story that fascinated Italy in the 1980s, DOGMAN follows Marcello, a small and gentle dog groomer. When Marcello is not devoting himself to his dogs or beloved daughter, he sells cocaine on the side. The money helps, but he fears his biggest customer, Simoncino, a former violent boxer who terrorizes the entire neighborhood. After a double-crossing, Marcello will be pushed to his limits and submit to an unexpected act of vengeance. Set in a seedy beachside wasteland, DOGMAN shines a light on the grimy reality of the Italian underworld through bleak directing from Matteo Garrone (GOMORRAH), intimate cinematography, and an empathetic performance from Marcello Fonte.
