WINNER: BEST ACTOR AND PALM DOG AWARDS, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
A gentle pint-sized guy, Marcello, runs a dog-grooming business on a rundown estate on the outskirts of town. He’s a doting father, popular with the locals, and frequently dwarfed by the canines he tends. Marcello is not, however, a model citizen. In his desire to raise money and spoil his young daughter, he falls foul of a violent, unstable bully. Actor Marcello Fonte deservedly won Best Actor at Cannes this year for his compelling portrayal of a meek man driven to the edge.
Terrifically good… A movie with incomparable bite and strength. – The Guardian
