If you thought 'City Of God' was raw...



Above is the trailer for the forthcoming Mafia film Gomorrah (Gomorra in Italian) directed by Matteo Garrone. The Observer has already hailed this film as a 'modern day classic' and I cannot wait to see it. Gomorrah is a neapolitan mob drama based on the 'non-fiction' novel by Roberto Saviano which exposed Italy's crimeworld. This hard hitting novel has sold 1.8 million copies to date and because it is based on the truth, has forced author Roberto Saviano into hiding. Roberto Saviano actually has Police guarding him and his home 24 hours a day. The mob want him fe dead.

Real talk.

Gomorrah will bring worldwide attention to the Commora, who are the most potent criminal organisation on the planet. The Commora has a higher body count than any other criminal syndicate in the world: 4,000 over the past four decades. Author Roberto Saviano named the Commora 'Italy's other mafia' in recognition that a lot of people think the Sicilian Mafia is the premier organisation.

Gomorrah's UK release date is 10th October 2008.
Thoughts?

Big post Dels. I saw it a couple of weeks ago & I'm on the book now (crime geek yes). The Camorrah run everything! It's deep.

If you're planning on seeing it check this guy, he's a boss in Naples, & the well documented war/slaughter he orchestrated against breakaway factions of his clan a couple of years ago is covered in Gomorrah.

Soprano's = joint first with the Wire for best TV series I've ever seen, & yep frzi they often send for Camorristi hitmen from Naples to do 'pieces'. Those kind of details are crazy.
