Dogman (15)

19-25 October


Marcello, an expert dog groomer, runs petty errands for local thieves in a grotty seaside village near Rome. But his fragile existence is torn to shreds when he falls under the influence of Simone, a bullying and violent criminal. An understated, tragicomic atmosphere is complemented by Marcello Fonte’s terrific central performance, which deservedly earned him the Best Actor award at Cannes. Specially commissioned programme notes will be available.

The Scotsman's Ali Harkness will introduce the 18.00 screening on Mon 22 October, as part of the Contemporary Cinema Course.
