Beppe Picks: Gomorra
September 8, 2022
"Gomorra" is a contemporary Neapolitan drama, guaranteed a fantastic Italian crime series.
The series dates from 2014 and is set mainly around Naples. In the slums of Campania, the Camorra crime syndicate has created a fortune out of cocaine, corruption and chemical waste. Some try to fight back, like teens Ciro (Ciro Petrone) and Marco (Marco Macor), who decide to steal a Camorra weapons cache in a bid to take control themselves. Others try to hide, like Pasquale (Salvatore Cantalupo), a tailor trying to get around paying protection fees. But the realisation sets in: The Camorra is too large, too deeply embedded in Italy to be fought.
Enjoy the exciting stories starring gangsters, drug dealers and ordinary citizens.
