Nominated for the 2019 BAFTA award for Best Film Not In The English Language. Winner of three awards at the European Film Awards 2018 including European Actor.
'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.
