Trivia

Most of the film's dialogue is spoken in Neapolitan dialect, rather than standard Italian (which is used only in the scene set in Venice). This dialect is virtually unintelligible outside the Naples area, so the film had to be subtitled in most Italian cinemas. Some critics later commented on how unusual the film's commercial success was, despite the book's popularity, since most Italian viewers generally - and notoriously - dislike subtitled films.

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie you can clearly see the character named Amerigo belly moving, when his dead body remains on the chair, where he has been having his nails cut. See more »

a gripping mafia film
27 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm writing mostly as a reaction to this film's relatively low IMDb rating...i think along with The Tree of Life with its almost shockingly low 6.7 rating, Gomorrah is, literally, the most underrated recent film on here. This documentary style crime mosaic is essential viewing, plain and simple. If you want to get a true sense of what modern organized crime is about, how it operates, how it permeates a particular place and how it effects individuals, look no further. Gomorrah is unflinching, uncompromising, devoid of glamour or conceit, it puts you right into its unforgiving and hopeless milieu.

There is no excess narrative fat here, no style for style's sake...it's probably the truest description of an organized crime network i've seen
