Jong-su bumps into a girl who used to live in the same neighborhood as him, who asks him to look after her cat while 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.
First, let's say that's definitely not a crime movie, but a pure drama. The tale of a poor man, specialized in dogs, cleaning dogs, hair dressing dogs, dog toiletting, this kind of stuff. But also a petty drug pusher, a sort of dope provider for the local punks. One of them is a f...nasty, brutal SOB, the kind of character whose any audience wish to see burned, killed, car crashed, short or long range shot with a Weatherby 460...A disgusting punk who abuses anyone besides him. And of course our lead is not the latest to endure the - maybe - nastier SOB in movie history. So every one in the audience waits for our poor dude to take revenge.
We have already seen this before. This could be a Netflix topic, I mean not for large audiences, not for sissies eating the poultry with the whole family, but this is damn, efficient. Only misses the "prison" sequence of our lead character, the perfect anti hero. This could have been very interesting to see him behind bars, how he behaves with the other inmates, the kind of guys very the same as the lead motherf....But that would have made a three hour feature. Or at least a mini series. yes, that's it. This movie should have been a mini series. Anyway, this is a true masterpiece.
