"A well crafted gem. The kind of Aesop's fable Scorsese would tell his kids" - Time Out

"One of the best Italian films of recent times, a modern day neorealist fable that bears comparison with the great work of Fellini, Rossellini, De Sica et al." - The Independent

Inspired by real events, DOGMAN takes place in an Italian suburb somewhere between metropolis and wild nature. Marcello a small and gentle dog groomer, finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of intimidation with Simone, a former violent boxer who bullies the entire neighbourhood. In an effort to reaffirm his dignity, Marcello will submit to an unexpected act of vengeance.
