Trivia

Suburra was a vast and populous district of ancient Rome. Since the population of the lower part of the district was constituted of urban underclass which lived in miserable conditions, although overlooking a monumental area and public services, the term suburra still has, in the common language, the generic meaning of an infamous place, theater of crimes and immorality.

Right up there with the very best gangster movies.
3 July 2016 | by valleyjohnSee all my reviews

A couple of years a go it was Scandinavian TV that was all the rage and now , thanks to the brilliant Gomorrah it seems to be Italian language mafia based TV that is the in thing. Suburra is in the same mould as Gomorrah although the protagonists are a little higher up the food chain . This is the story a politician who gets caught up with the local mafia when he asks someone to help him sort a problem that involves a dead girl in his hotel room. Firstly let me say this film looks stunning. The cinematography is breathtaking at times and it's complimented by a fantastic soundtrack from M83. There are some good performances especially from Pierfrancesco Favino (Malgradi ) and Alessandro Borghi (number 8) who I think we might be seeing more of in the future. Suburra is a film that will stay in the memory for a very long time. Highly Recommended.
