Julia Gutiérrez Caba,
Jong-su bumps into a girl who used to live in the same neighborhood, who asks him to look after her cat while she's on a trip to Africa. When back, she introduces Ben, a mysterious guy she met there, who confesses his secret hobby.
Marcello, a small and gentle dog groomer, finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of subjugation with Simone, a former violent boxer who terrorizes the entire neighborhood. In an effort to reaffirm his dignity, Marcello will submit to an unexpected act of vengeance.
A crude, intense movie about human despair, sapiently directed and with superb acting performance
Dogman is a movie about the perennial fight between good and evil, stage in a forgotten, surreal suburb in the Rome province. Its population is a small working class community living life on the edge between legality and small criminality, with the common goal of surviving another day.
In this context Marcello, a dog sitter, is a child like soul, bullied by the thug of the quarter, Simone; Marcello loves his dogs, loves his job, loves his daughter and desperately tries to love life, hoping against hope that he will be able to get away with his thousands subterfuges. Marcello is no hero, he's actually a weakling, a coward, and when he finds the strength not to betray it will be for the wrong person.
In the end, in his long struggle for survival and for hope, he will discover the ultimate courage to try and win evil through evil, just to discover that that will be his final road to an infinite loneliness.
Dogman is a crude, intense movie, well directed with sapient camera movements, where the solo performance of Marcello stands out with his magnificent facial and eyes expressions.
