Matteo Garrone (Tale of Tales, Gomorrah) directs this gritty revenge drama about a mild-mannered dog groomer who takes revenge on the ex-con that tormented him.
Inspired by a true story, writer/director Matteo Garrone's (Tale of Tales, Gomorrah) bravura noir is a hugely compelling, meticulously directed and photographed, revenge tale about a gentle dog lover who is driven to take a stand against a local ex-con. Impeccably performed, with Marcello Fonte's extraordinary performance awarded Best Actor at Cannes, and gripping from start to finish, it's another electrifying vision from one of Italy's finest filmmakers. Italy's Official Oscar Submission.
