In a seaside village on the outskirts of an Italian city, where the only law seems to be survival of the fittest, Marcello is a slight, mild-mannered man who divides his days between working at his modest dog grooming salon, caring for his daughter Alida, and being coerced into the petty criminal schemes of the local bully Simoncino, an ex-boxer who terrorizes the neighborhood. When Simoncino’s abuse finally brings Marcello to a breaking point, he decides to stand up for his own dignity through an act of vengeance, with unintended consequences. The excellent performance of Marcello Fonte in the lead role won him the Best Actor Award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Based on a true story, Dogman is a visceral and piercing tale of the unbreakable cycle of vengeance begetting vengeance.
