Magnolia has released the trailer for Matteo Garrone‘s (Gomorrah) crime drama Dogman, which involves a mild mannered dog groomer forced into a life of crime by the domineering and psychotic town bully. The film stars Marcello Fonte, Edoardo Pesce, Nunzia Schiano, Adamo Dionisi, Francesco Acquaroli, Alida Baldari Calabria, and Gianluca Gobbi.
Dogman opens in theaters April 12th.
In a seaside village on the outskirts of an Italian city, where the only law seems to be survival of the fittest, Marcello is a slight, mild-mannered man who divides his days between working at his modest dog grooming salon, caring for his daughter Alida, and being coerced into the petty criminal schemes of the local bully Simoncino, an ex-boxer who terrorizes the neighborhood. When Simoncino’s abuse finally brings Marcello to a breaking point, he decides to stand up for his own dignity through an act of vengeance, with unintended consequences.
