"Whatever he says, don't trust him." Magnolia Pictures has unveiled the official US trailer for Dogman, the latest Italian drama from acclaimed filmmaker Matteo Garrone (GomorrahRealityTale of Tales). This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year, where it won the Best Actor award. This gritty "urban western" from Italy tells a (true) story of a homicide committed by a coked-out dog groomer during the late 1980s.

The story goes that this guy was just a gentle dog groomer before he got pushed into a much more violent world thanks to the local mobsters. The cast includes Marcello FonteEdoardo PesceAdamo DionisiFrancesco AcquaroliGianluca GobbiNunzia Schiano, and Alida Baldari Calabria. I saw this at Cannes and loved it, one of my favorite films of the fest (read my full review), and I recommend it - especially for dog lovers and/or fans of contemporary Italian cinema. Opening in US theaters this April.
