Synopsis:
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 (Edoardo Pesce), 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.

Felliniesque - Dogman review by JP

Spoiler Alert
04/02/2019

This Italian film took me back to my young days of enjoying the wonderful, Italian films of the 50's and 60's. Dogman won't be for everyone. There is lots of violence and seedy scenes. The film deals with paternal love, friendship, and loyalty. The main character is simple but also complex, and his life revolves around his business caring for dogs and his young daughter. His seaside town is below the poverty line and desolate as are many of the characters.

Dogman bites back - Dogman review by TE

Spoiler Alert
28/03/2019

A good tale well told. Marcello, the Dogman, is bullied by the villainous Simone into complicity in a serious crime.

The Dogman has our sympathy: he dotes on his daughter, and he rescues and cares for dogs. His moment of catharsis does eventually come, but at a terrible price.

Garrone uses a dark palette here, reflecting the grim battle for survival that everyone is waging in the sodden remains of a coastal town, where any sense of community has long since evaporated.
