Gomorrah isn't your average crime thriller. Based on a book that cut so close to the bone of Naples' organised crime network that its author had to go into hiding, the film adaptation similarly pulls no punches. Naples' mafia, the Camorrah, is an enormous organisation whose power seems so entrenched that they have become an everyday part of life for the people living under it. Violence is commonplace, corruption rampant, the mob's presence inescapable.

Gomorrah weaves a picture of crime in Naples, following multiple interweaving stories. While cocksure teenage boys play at being gangsters, the leaders of the Camorra are staging corporate crimes of mind boggling proportions. Not an easy watch, this brutal film, screening at ACMI, is nonetheless an impeccably made piece of modern Italian cinema that tells a story few are familiar with.
