Freely inspired by a news story among the bloodiest of recent years: the story of the Canaro della Magliana. Garrone tell us about decayed Italy, desolate and disconsolate from which the story of Marcello and his grooming shop emerges. He is an average but clearly good and simple man. His character opposes itself in an ambiguous, at times symbiotic, relationship with Simone, the neighborhood bully. When the latter decides to use the shop as a basis for his last robbery, the balance will break. The struggles, the relationships, the emotions are told as a quiet revenge, without screams and grotesque scenes of news announced. The new Italian cinema: Palme d’Or at Marcello Source as Best Actor in a Protagonist role.
