A new event series from Stefano Sollima, the writer and director of ‘Romanzo Criminale’, based on Robert Saviano’s best-selling book and the subsequent Cannes Golden Palm winning film of the same name.
Gomorrah is the inside story of fierce Neapolitan crime organisation the Camorra, as seen through the eyes of Ciro (Marco D’Amore), the obedient and self-confident right-hand man of the clan’s godfather, Pietro Savastano (Fortunato Cerlino), whose loyalty is tested to its limits over twelve blood-drenched episodes.
Ciro knows better than anyone what it means to be a loyal clan member. But when Pietro decides to sacrifice many of his own only to make a blood-drenched statement to rival clan boss Salvatore Conte, something dies in Ciro – for one of the many victims of the bloodshed is his foster father Attilio, himself an ever-loyal clan member.

To clarify the title of my review, this series shows a lot of people dying in one horrendous form, or another - there is no scenic view of Naples but rather a series framed within the context of street level ghettoised crime and its tiered organisation from the pavement to the Don's chair. The audience is presented with the subtitled world of Gomorrah set in the Camorra, the Neapolitan crime consortium. A crime series where the viewer is given a narrative about external and internal power struggles between criminals and delinquents.
Originally, the book by Roberto Saviano was made into a film in 2008. The look and feel and the textures that make up Gomorrah do not look too dissimilar from the Baltimore of The Wire. Alternatively, for that matter, even the Brooklyn of the film Goodfellas. There are clichés and more clichés, in this crime drama. They are there precisely because they are part of the imagined landscape. The recent populist view of gangsters: they love their Mamas, they are foodies, they make the sign of the cross, they kiss one another on the cheek, and they are affectionate with their children. Nevertheless, they are cold-blooded and would as soon kill you as look at you. This is a series that is crude and ugly, and yet so startlingly realistic in its presentation. As the audience is immersed on a tour de force of sleazy backstreets, no-hope vandalised dwellings and indulgent apartments garishly furnished fresh from the set of Scarface, with mafia dons ill-gotten gains.
Largely the acting is spot on, However, the subtitling is rather suspect, in my opinion, as you wonder did they really say that.Read more ›
souls. In the series, we also see how the Camorra infiltrates the political structure, presenting their own candidates and falsifying electoral results to place their men in important positions. The series follows the ups/downs of one particular family and its gang members . There is little/no sex in this series, but be prepared for heavy doses of unthinking violence as part of the everyday lives of these gangs. Killing people in a public place, even innocent bystanders is a regular occurrence as they seek to extend their power. Well acted, with haunting scenes of brutal tenement blocks, and a soundtrack of "angry" Italian music, this is "noir" at its best.
