Dogman

Matteo Garrone, Italy, France, 2018o

s
vBack

The dog hairdresser Marcello, called Dogman by all, lives with his daughter a modest but satisfied life in the dull suburb of a southern Italian coastal town. The tyranny of the former boxer Simone threatens to completely destroy the battered idyll of Marcello and his entire neighbourhood. Finally, Marcello forges a plan.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about a hugely impressive exercise in directorial control is the fact that we come away from an intensely violent film, a film where bones crunch and blood smells, touched by pathos and a strange sense of hope. [Excerpt]

Lee Marshall

Selten sieht man im Kino so konsequentes Einsamkeitsgrau und Verzweiflungsschwarz. Hier, am Ende aller Zukunftsaussicht, hat eine elende italienische Gegenwart etwas von quasi gefrorener Endgültigkeit.

Christoph Schneider

In einer süditalienischen Kleinstadt lässt sich ein sanftmütiger Hundefriseur (Marcello Fonte) von einem boshaften Ex-Mafioso tyrannisieren, um ihm am Ende dann doch ein bisschen Widerstand zu leisten. Matteo Garrones auch in Cannes gezeigter Film ist weniger Stellungnahme als Symptom einer passiven, paralysierten Gesellschaft, die sich von Neofaschismus und brutalem Maskulinismus zerquetschen lässt.

Philipp Stadelmaier

La réalisation de Garrone est entièrement axée autour de cette impression progressive de perte d'une raison d'être, grâce à la discrétion, voire à la froideur, de sa narration, à ses cadrages sobres et précis, à sa photographie naturelle jamais appuyée, à son montage strictement fonctionnel et, surtout, à l'ensemble de ses interprètes au jeu d'une très grande justesse.
