“A curative for the romanticism of The Godfather and Scarface.” — Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Power, money and blood: these are the values that the residents of the Province of Caserta, between the cities of Aversa and Casal di Principe, have to face every day. They hardly ever have a 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 apparently imaginary world, but one which is deeply rooted in reality. 

When Gomorrah was originally released in 2008, writer/director Matteo Garrone (DogmanTale of Tales) was praised and awarded for the film’s serious, unromanticised and almost documentary-style portrayal of organised crime in Italy and the devastating impact it had on all levels of society. For this new version Garrone has re-evaluated his film with fresh eyes, and has shortened the run time and made key scenes clearer, without compromising the overall structure of the film.
