Synopsis:
A new event series from Stefano Sollima ('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 men only to make a bloody 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.

Ultra-violent, Ultimately depressing Naples-set Italian Gangster TV Drama based on movie - Gomorrah: Series 1 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
30/06/2019

I found this movie intensely depressing. Maybe it's the constant relentless violence and shooting (no spoilers there - it's a mafia drama, what d'you expect, a bake off?). Maybe it's the total lack of hope for something better.

I understand a lot of Italian and have visited Naples, so 'get' a lot of the cultural references. The problem is, I found I didn't really care that much about the characters, who are pretty predictable: the mafia boss, the son, the wife, the underlings, the snitches etc. Nothing different from 1930s James Cagney movies except the Italian rap soundtrack! The instrumental music played is actually highly effective.

Also, so much of the scenes happen in near-darkness and the lighting seems to waver too, not sure why - but for that reason and more, I doubt I shall watch the other series of this.

For classic gangster mafia drama, I suppose The Sopranos will always be the standard.

3 stars.
