Having lived in the Naples area for several years, I was very interested to see this film. I read the book a while ago and found it to be fascinating, so wanted to see if the film lived up to this. I don't usually like gangster films at all, so I wasn't sure what I would make of it.
I have to say that I loved it. It wasn't an "enjoyable" film to watch, but I found it so realistic and true to life. The situation really is like that in parts of Naples (other parts are lovely). I liked the fact that it didn't attempt to glamorise life in the Camorra or create a far-fetched plot. It almost felt more like a documentary or reality TV.
I don't think this is a film that is going to appeal to everyone, as it is probably hard to follow if you don't already have a good knowledge of the area and its problems. However, for those who already have an interest in Naples and the Camorra it is a must!
The acting is excellent and I really sympathised with some of the characters, such as Roberto.
Having read some of the other reviews, I should add that I speak fluent Italian and understand Neapolitan pretty well, so I think that helped. The subtitles weren't great, but fortunately I was able to overlook them.

This visceral depiction of inner city life has received heaps of praise and rightly so - but on BLU RAY - there are two versions.
One plays on UK machines - and the other doesn't.

The desirable US issue on Criterion is REGION-A LOCKED.
So it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK Blu Ray players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't).
Don't confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front - that won't help.

Luckily the REGION B issue does play on UK machines - albeit with the better print.

DO NOT EXPECT A GOODFELLAS GLAMORISATION OF THE MAFIA.

This film was epic, it's a film/documentary

The actors are not actors but locals and roughly based on a true story

The language they speak is not Italian it's a napolitano, a dialect even I find hard to understand. The subtitles gave you a jist of what they were saying.

Very good film if you follow the plot and understand what's going on. Very cleverly made, this film is for smart people that understand cinema not some spoilt brat looking for action and explosions.

THIS IS THE REAL MAFIA NOT TONY SOPRANO

I think some people approached this film expecting some Hollywood romanticize view of the Mafia, I know I did. True, it has a start that wrong foots you. Almost traditional and quite bloody Mafia film for the first five minutes, but, this gives way very quickly to a more slow paced film with very little violence (though strong occasional violence is there), and this is where it wrong foots you.

As I watched I realized it was not about the Mafia itself, but about a small area of Italy. Specifically what looked like their equivalent to a council flat complex. It unfolded with six people being followed via five threads, not necessarily linked to one another but glued together by the area they lived in, more specifically how the Mafia's influence touches everybody's life, either directly or indirectly in the area.

The five threads:

The 'hot heads', most easy to follow and understand, couple of lads influenced by the romanticize work of Hollywood films such as 'raging bull', wanted to go it alone but were dealing with ruthless people way out of their league, one more against his will than the other.

The 'boy' - this is an example of how young people get (and want to get) into the Mafia life style but also those associated with him paid the price.

The 'mud man' - this one was actual Mafia, in the extras it is told the he was given the task of disposing of waste mud that was toxic, what he in fact did was sell it to a company that recycled it for fertilizer. Hence he was paid twice and hence the statistics before the end credits

The 'Taylor', this was the most vague, but his work had connections with one branch of the Mafia, he was also working for a Chinese company run by the rival Chinese Mafia.

The Plot
On the outskirts of Naples, past the beautifully historic buildings and tourist trappings, lie the city's crumbling estates. Here the city is slowing by torn apart by the Camorra.

The Review
There are many things which the Italians do well - pasta, football, Catholicism - but most importantly, crime. The Camorra, the Mafia-esque mob at the heart of Gomorrah, isn't like the mob seen in a Martin Scorsese film or the Sopranos - there are no gentlemen's agreements and no second chances. This is primal violence of the highest degree - survival of the fittest.

After its bloody beginnings, Gomorrah veers off in five different directions, examining how this poisonous crime organization seeps into every faucet of society in Naples. We follow Don Ciro (Gianfelice Imparato), an old hand at the business, who pays off the families of mob members who are currently in jail; simple dress maker (Salvatore Cantalupo), who makes the mistake of crossing the mob and helping out their Chinese rivals; two young upstarts (Marco Macor, Toni Petroni) who think they're the next Tony Montana; 13 year old Toto (Salvatore Abruzzese) who falls in with one of the criminal gangs; and Roberto (Carmine Paternoster), a graduate who becomes disillusioned with this new job of managing illegal toxic waster. The entire cast, some of which are new to the acting world, all give sterling performances, especially so the youngsters.

With a few artistic tweaks to the original story, Gomorrah could have easily been made into a `different lives slowly coming together' film in the same vein of Crash or Magnolia. But the Camorra is different.
