Gomorrah

Matteo Garrone's stark, shocking vision of contemporary gangsterdom, is one of cinema's most authentic depictions of organized crime. A tour de force adaptation of undercover Italian reporter Roberto Saviano's best-selling expose of Naples' Mafia underworld (known as the Camorra), Garrone links five disparate tales in which men and children are caught up in a corrupt system that extends from the housing projects to the world of haute couture. Filmed with an exquisite detachment interrupted by bursts of violence, this is a shattering, socially-engaged true crime story from a major new voice in Italian cinema.
