Movie Info

In a seaside village on the outskirts of an Italian city, where the only law seems to be survival of the fittest, Marcello is a slight, mild-mannered man who divides his days between working at his modest dog grooming salon, caring for his daughter Alida, and being coerced into the petty criminal schemes of the local bully Simoncino, an ex-boxer who terrorizes the neighborhood. When Simoncino's abuse finally brings Marcello to a breaking point, he decides to stand up for his own dignity through an act of vengeance, with unintended consequences.

½

On a purely rational level, I can see what Garrone is trying to do here; in practice, though, his character's motivations are too puzzling, as his actions seem extremely unconvincing (no matter how brilliant Marcello Fonte is) and he only comes off as a passive idiot full of stupid ideas.
