gomorra_hautGommorah is a brilliant first hand account of present day life in mafia ruled Naples.  Gomorrah was written by an ex-mafia member, Roberto Saviano and exploits the activities of the Mafia in Italy.  Due to the success of the novel and film, Saviano has now been forced into police protection.The film entwines five different stories, each unique and corrupt.  What I liked most about this film other than its bleak honesty was that it left out all the typical Mafia film stereotypes (although it did include fashionable track suits).  It is a story about ordinary people doing unordinary things.  There was little “Hollywood” in this film, no big star such as Deniro or Pacino, no big director, just plan unadulterated crime hate and death.
