Riccardo De Filippis,
"Gomorra" is a contemporary Neapolitan mob drama that exposes Italy's criminal underbelly by telling five stories of individuals who think they can make their own compact with Camorra, the area's Mafia.Written by
Talk about flimsy story lines. We watched for 2 hrs and asked ourselves, "What is going on?". The multiple plots were a trainwreck trying to keep up with.
Yea, it shows the gritty side of Italy. Yea, it features some criminals. But it seemed to me that it was just filming the characters delivering food, making dresses (one is a dressmaker), and delivering money.
There was a (boring) subplot about illegal dumping of waste. The one story that was slightly interesting was the two wannabe gangsters.
Unless you like movies just for the fact that it is set in Italy, avoid this nonsensical bore fest.
