In the slums of Campania, the Camorra crime syndicate has created a fortune out of cocaine, corruption and chemical waste. Some try to fight back, like teens Ciro (Ciro Petrone) and Marco (Marco Macor), who decide to steal a Camorra weapons cache in a bid to take control themselves. Others try to hide, like Pasquale (Salvatore Cantalupo), a tailor trying to get around paying protection fees. But the realisation sets in: the Camorra is too large, too deeply embedded in Italy to be fought. Based on Robert Saviano’s best-selling book and winner of 34 awards including a Golden Globe nomination for Best Film, Gomorrah is a brilliant inside look at Italy’s modern crime families and a chilling reminder of how average citizens can get caught up in a cycle of corruption and violence. The film is superbly directed by Matteo Garrone who demonstrates complete command of his story and characters; a classic thriller and definitely one to catch at Subtitle 2017.
