by Matteo Garrone New World View: Italy

Marcello, a pleasant, unassuming man, operates a dog-grooming salon in La Magliana, a rundown suburb of Rome. At night, he deals cocaine in order to finance a vacation with his daughter. Marcello is a friendly and loyal member of the neighbourhood – extending his kindness also to Simoncino, a drug-addicted ex-boxer who terrorises the whole area with his sudden and violent outbursts. When Simoncino forces underdog Marcello to hand over his grooming parlour for a robbery he is planning on the adjoining jewellery shop, Marcello's life is turned upside down. Ten years after his ground-breaking film GOMORRA, Matteo Garrone has created an uncompromising inventory of Italian society. Lead actor Marcello Fonte’s extraordinary performance has been awarded best actor at Cannes Film Festival.
