Gomorrah

EXPLOSIVE...The ultimate anti-Godfather

— Tom Carson, Chicago Tribune

The best Italian mob movie since THE GODFATHER.

— Glen Whipp, LA Daily News

A furious and brilliant engagement with the times we live in.

— A.O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES

Engrossing...A tremendously assured, often stunning film.

— Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

YOU'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE GOMORRAH. An electrifying dramatization of Roberto Saviano's jolting book. This is one of the very best movies I've seen in 2008, and it'll be a knockout for lucky viewers all over again in 2009.

— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

MASSIVELY RIVETING...A movie like no other.

— Mark Olson, LA Times

A fierce, propulsive organized crime saga.

— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

****! One hell of a jolt!

— Michael Phillips, GQ

Power, money and blood: these are the values that the residents of the province of Naples and Caserta confront every day. They have practically no choice, and are forced to obey the rules of the “System,” the Camorra. Only a lucky few can even think of leading a normal life. Five stories are woven together in this violent scenario, set in a cruel and ostensibly invented world, but one that is deeply rooted in reality.
