Matteo Garrone's 'Dogman' Opening in Theaters Across America

Marcello (Marcello Fonte) is an animal lover who runs a neighborhood dog grooming business. He adores his pre-teen daughter and takes her on scuba diving expeditions. The two dream of going to exotic places like the Red Sea, Hawaii and the Maldives. Marcello also has a frailty about him and sometimes seems to feel inferior. He doesn't speak up on his own behalf and people take advantage of him, especially the local bully, Simone (Edoardo Pesce). Marcello goes along with Simone's antics and even saves his life after he was hit during a drive by shooting. However, things start spiraling out of control and Simone makes a demand that Marcello strongly opposes. After Simone roughs him up and makes it clear that he won't take no for an answer, Marcello caves and ends up taking the fall for Simone. When he finishes doing time for the crime he didn't commit, he finds himself a changed man. Prison opened his eyes and he no longer tolerates being bullied. Simone, more evil than ever, doesn't acknowledge what Marcello did for him and blows him off. That was Marcello's last straw and he vows to get revenge. What follows are some of the most suspenseful, tense moments in the history of filmmaking. Matteo Garrone's direction of his talented cast is second to none. The combination of Garrone, Fonte and Pesce results in a perfect cinematic storm. If Dogman is playing near you, do not miss it.
