Gomorrah

Based on a book so hard-hitting that it apparently forced author Robert Saviano into hiding, Gomorrah provides an inside look at Italy's modern-day mob families, specifically, the Napoli Mafia (The Camorra). Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival 2008.

Fascinating stuff

This is showing the mafia for wat it really is if ur involved the only way out is death. Its "kill or be killed". Some say it's a bit slow, but i think it really took the time to get into the world and these people and unforgiving and ruthless they really are

A FIVE STAR WINNER

Wow what a flick, went with my husband both of us LOVED this film, it unfolds in an intelligent and endearing way, it is very real and ultimately a very very good Mafia Flick, I can't believe there are two such great Mafia movies on at the moment, (the sicilian girl) ignore the festival and see these first I say!

Utilizing a mesmerizing documentary style that studiously avoids glamorizing the horrors, Garrone cherrypicks episodes from Saviano's muckraking tract, building to a chillingly matter-of-fact crescendo of violence...

After Gomorrah fades to black, shiver-inducing stats flash on to the screen like nails being hammered into a coffin.

Part of what's bracing about Gomorrah, and makes it feel different from so many American crime movies, is both its deadly serious take on violence and its global understanding of how far and wide the mob's tentacles reach, from high fashion to the very dirt.

Gomorrah looks grimy and sullen, and has no heroes, only victims. That is its power.

It's cruel, it’s violent, and it’s cripplingly real, so this film won't be for everyone. But even with my well-documented girlie stomach for violence, I still found this an incredibly rewarding watch.

The fingerprints of the Camorra are everywhere, this film wants us to know, and its grip is lethal.

Powerful, stripped to its very essence and featuring a spectacular cast (of mostly non-professionals), Matteo Garrone's sixth feature film Gomorra goes beyond Tarrantino's gratuitous violence and even Scorsese's Hollywood sensibility in depicting the everyday reality of organized crime's foot soldiers.

A sombre, slow, but well-paced study of organised crime in urban Naples that leaves a very grim taste in the mouth.

Gomorrah is a very strong, occasionally entrancing film. I would have liked to have seen more cross-over between the stories, and the film would have benefited from a tighter edit, but it deserves its accolades, and your attention.
