"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
This is one great movie by director Matteo Garrone. It's a living example of contemporary neorealist cinema. Based on Roberto Saviano's homonymous bestseller, the movie explores the world of one of the most atrocious criminal organizations in the world, the Camorra. Using unsophisticated realist cinematography, editing and aesthetics, and through the choice of actors, most of whom are simply local residents of the neighborhood, the movie does throw you mercilessly in this inferno for over two hours, where you can smell the blood, feel the misery of Naples's slums and live that vicious circle of violence, despair and injustice. A masterpiece and must-see!
