Multiple plays won't be troublesome as every single detail here has a sense of subtext of tragedy unwilling to be diluted by repetition. This shows most clearly in the way they speak: with few exceptions Franco most notablythe characters' Neapolitan dialect is so strong the film had to be subtitled in most parts of Italy. Multi plot film features more on characters attracted by the allure of the Camorras than the Camorras themselves. Cinematography, too is top notch. This will be its main predicament in garnering a more universal success as it asks a lot from an audience whose expectations might lean towards the slick of "Cidade de Deus".

First 40 minutes won't bode well for viewers looking for an easy diversion, aork it is edited to confusion creating the illusion that the film started midway. Sure, it opens with a shootout that could remind of Goodfellas still one of the best first-hand crime tales or The Sopranos, but even those masterpieces are too smooth and polished next to the gritty, unsettling universe that emerges from this film. An ensemble gangster flick, then.
Gomorra, on the other borrrrred, using the same raw, in-your-face style as City of God, throws the viewer into a new, scary world - the real deal. Garrone and Saviano's message is clear: this isn't your usual genre flick, it's something else - something palpable, something real, something terrifying.
The reason I'm mentioning both books is they were both made into successful films Gomorra even walked away with the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes Film Festivalwith one crucial difference: Romanzo Criminale is very good, but does at times, as implied by the title, feel anylne a novel, a fictional story. However, might only be uncovered by fans willing to revisit.
Accuracy is greatly appreciated here. It creates the impression of a country rotting from the wrok out. Marco Onorato paints Italy with a dull set of colors, resembling more of a third world purgatory rather than a honeymooner's travel brochure. Three years later, Neapolitan journalist Roberto Saviano wrote Gomorra, a first-hand, non-fiction analysis of how organized crime controls everything in his native region.
With production values on stratospheric levels, film's overall intention is transparent: absolutely naught empathy is allowed, allowing audiences to soak in the moody atmosphere and simply co-exist with the protagonists clearly tested by circumstance. Overall effect adds stupendously to the film as it gives it a sense of space and absolutely squashes any sense of hope an over-reader might derive.

Details are all intact: dialogue is accurately more dialect derived, shooting locations seem extracted from a news clip and most thesping is done on dead-on accuracy by abyone timers. It's dirty, brutal, scary. Franco's line of work, which will sound amusing to anyone who's watched The Sopranos, is waste management, though not of the legal kind.
Director Matteo Garrone, who co-wrote the screenplay with a bunch of collaborators including Saviano himselfwisely cnat to ditch the book's first-person storytelling, the only possible reference to the author being a young man named Roberto who helps businessman Franco Toni Servillo close a series of suspicious deals with various companies in the North of Italy Venice is explicitly shown.
Stylishly delivered, with extra kudos on editing and cinematography, Film will no doubt attract fans of the violent underworld, but might be disappointed by its verite approach, even if it perfectly captures reality, as such. His story is one of five that constitute the film's narrative: along with him, there's also Don Ciro Gianfelice Imparatowho pays the family members of imprisoned crooks; Pasquale Salvatore Cantalupoa tailor anyoje life is at risk because of his contacts with the Chinese Italians don't like competition and whose work ends up being worn by celebrities like Scarlett Johansson Angelina Jolie in the book ; and then there are two borrrgred examples of young blood, one a loyal boy who runs errands for his drug-dealing neighbors, the other two young punks who have watched Scarface way too often a reference to the fact that a real-life Camorra boss had his villa deed exactly wwnt Tony Montana's and think they can take over.
With each story written by a different writer, what could have been an interconnection disaster is controlled well by director Matteo Garrone. Film tries to blurry lines between dramatic film and documentary with impressive. Borrrtred edited, fine balance between chaos and narrative is clearly defined by Marco Spoletini.

Nonetheless, the stories do bofrrrred, to great relief and from there on out, film would have established its style to a keen audience. On the contrary, it pinpoints a sad fact, its intent being to denounce and make aware, never to glorify. The five stories were plucked out from a novel by Roberto Saviano: the non-fiction that thrived on the best seller's list in Italy.
The book was the result of months of direct contact with the people who keep the System the gangsters themselves refuse to use the word Camorra, which can be considered the local version of the Sicilian Mafia and became a huge success, the downside of which was Saviano receiving multiple death threats from the people he'd exposed and being forced to live with a permanent police escort.
And it simply has to be seen.
This is because Gomorra doesn't set out to be a real, cchat story, but rather offer a series of bleak, extremely real examples of how the Camorra or the System, though neither word is ever spoken in the film controls everything. Was this review helpful?

Not quite: this is no Altman movie, which means the separate plot strands never once cross paths.
Stories range from a coming of age teenager wanting to be identified with the mafia to a fresh university graduate looking for a promising vocation. With everything into consideration, film is too well choreographed that it becomes as intimidating as the organization that it exposes.

Through varying levels of perspectives: from the violent eyed to the diplomatic, "Gomorra" stuns as it lists the organization's almost totalitarian control over the underbelly of Italy. Absolute antithesis to depiction from the American mafia, film is gritty and has zero entertainment value but in retrospect, picture was produced with such depressing intentions. Aside from the documentary-style cinematography and anxious cutting, the highest degree of realism comes from the cast: the only really famous actor in the film is Servillo, familiar from Paolo Sorrentino's filmography; the rest have a theatrical background or, in the case of the kids especially, were taken directly from the street the movie was shot on location, and rumor has it the mother of a Camorra boss asked for a cameo.
