‘Terrifically good … A movie with incomparable bite and strength.’
In a run-down seaside resort, a gentle dog-groomer has to stand up to a tough local bully. When he is not looking after clients’ dogs at his grooming parlor slight, mild-mannered Marcello spends his days doting on his young daughter. But Marcello lives under the thumb of Simone, a local thug who is making Marcello’s life increasingly difficult.
This follow-up to director Matteo Garrone’s 2015 Perth Festival hit Tale of Tales is a bold and engrossing vision of a smalltime hood.
