Fort Apache Napoli
3 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this last month at the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival. Coming on the heels of the recent book Gomorrah by Roberto Saviano that was made into a successful film here is another look at the Naples based urban mob with a long history in Italy, Camorra. Fortapàsq is Italian slang for an American phrase, Fort Apache, in it's meaning of under siege. Written by writer/director Marco Risi with Jim Carrington and Andrea Purgatori this is a true story based on investigative reporter Giancarlo Siani (Liberto De Rienzo), a young journalist who in 1985 digs too deep into the workings of the Camorra and its political ties. His reporting for a small local newspaper on the rival warfare of Camorra families leads to national recognition a a job for a big city newspaper. He continues his investigative series there and which leads him into real trouble. A good cast with great supporting roles from Ernesto Mahieux as Siani's friend and co-worker and Massimiliano as a Camorra mobster who has been selected to eventually become the mobs main Don. This is a good film for a general audience as it plays kind of like a made-for TV movie but I would recommend it and give it a 7.0 out of 10.
