Power, money and blood: these are the 'values' that the residents of the province of Naples and Caserta confront every day. They have practically no choice, and are forced to obey the rules of the 'System', the Camorra. Only a lucky few can even think of a leading a 'normal' life.
Five stories are woven together in this violent scenario, set in a cruel and ostensibly invented world, but one that is deeply rooted in reality.
Don Ciro is "il sottomarino". He pays the families of the prisoners that are affiliated with his clan, a clan that has the undisputed command of the territory. He is sharp, discreet and carries out his job without getting involved. But at a certain point the clan begins to crumble. Unsure who to take orders from, he has to worry about his own survival.
Tot is 13 years old and can't wait to "grow up". So he begins his training in the school of life, one step at a time, until one day he has to make a decision, an irreversible choice.
Marco and Ciro think they are living in a Brian de Palma film, but in the eyes of the 'system' they are only two stray dogs whose acts of bravado are disturbing the orderly routine of business.
Roberto is a university graduate and wants to work. Franco offers him a great opportunity, steady employment with good earning prospects: a job in the field of toxic waste management. But the reality of his task is too disconcerting to Roberto's conscience.
Pasquale is a talented tailor who works under the table for a small enterprise subcontracted by the haute couture clothes industry. Chinese competitors give him the opportunity to teach the secrets of his trade to their workers. He is seduced and gratified by the opportunity and accepts, putting his life in danger.

If you loved City of God then you’ll really enjoy this film. It takes cues from De Palma’s Scarface and many other Gangster movies, but bases the real life stories in a very neo-realist sense. Although we see a lot of gun play and fantasy being acted out by the film’s almost comedic relief in the form of the characters Marco and Ciro (who act out scenes from Scarface and are always doing coke and robbing people), it is heavily realistic and does not glamorize the “gangster” lifestyle at all. I highly recommend Gomorrah for those interested in shows such as The Wire or The Corner, oh and Homicide Life on the Streets. Gomorrah doesn’t let character get in the way of story, it brings a fresh approach to the “gangster genre” by showcasing the truth, that it’s a crap world that ruins lives and causes damage to so many innocent people. At the end of the film it states that due to the illegal dumping of chemicals, the risk of getting cancer is increased by 20%, and all for a bit of money. At times, Gomorrah may be a little too raw, but nonetheless it is ruthless and unrelenting, engaging and deserves a spot as a quintessential modern day Italian film. Who cares if Scorsese loves it, this film can stand on its own merit.

gomorrah was in my opinion a good movie that I thought was well written with a well thought out story line and a believable plot.The level of acting in this movie was of a good standard with all lines delivered in a well timed manner and it was this and the story lines as well as the interesting characters which made this movie enjoyable to watch.
If you enjoy a well made movie I think you will enjoy this movie and as such is recommended by me.
