Synopsis

Marcello, an expert dog groomer, lives in a grotty seaside village near Rome. He ekes out a meagre living running petty errands for local thieves. But the fragile ecosystem Marcello inhabits is torn to shreds when he falls under the ambit of Simone, a bullying and violent criminal.

MUBI's take

From the acclaimed director of Gomorrah comes another dark tale of corruption set on the fringes of Rome, based on the gruesome true story of a brutal murder that shook 1980s Italy. Marcello Fonte won the Best Actor award in Cannes for his remarkable performance as an earnest yet shady dog-groomer.
