'Gomorrah' and 'Tales of Tales' director Matteo Garrone delivers a riveting slice of Italian life with this chamber crime drama. Cannes Best Actor winner Marcello Fonte excels as a timid dog groomer whose good nature is taken advantage of by a local hood, with disastrous results. Beautifully shot, Garrone's film cements his position as one of contemporary Italian cinema's most important filmmakers.
