The great names in cinema
| 102 minutes | 2018
A dog-groomer living in a ratty Neapolitan suburb who sells a little coke on the side to make ends meet sees his world turn upside-down when a childhood friend is released from prison. After the unforgettable Gomorra (2008), director Matteo Garrone is back with a vengeance to deliver this bleak meditation on everyday crime. With a masterful performance by Marcello Fonte (who took the best actor award at Cannes), Garrone’s drama eloquently reflects on the savagery beneath the surface of so-called human nature. A film with bite, terrifying and captivating.The film will be screened in its original version with french subtitles on October 5th and with english subtitles on October 11th
