Our Take

7.5
The Staff

In a small Italian town, a dog cleaner’s wholesome days dealing with elderly owners and eager children are balanced with a series of messy nights. The small and frail man finds himself targetted by the town’s black-sheep, a strong and fearless ex-convict. Dogman is about the line between being bullied and wanting to be part of something, it’s a beautiful and often thrilling character study from Italian genius filmmaker Matte Garone. Won the Best Actor award at Cannes.

What a psychologically violent movie. It’s about a simple man who turns criminal, pushed by a heartless ex-convict. The main actor is incredible in his portrayal of an ordinary man whose life is transformed. Great movie.
