Now this is a strange, strange story. You may remember Matteo Garrone’s 2009 film “Gomorrah.” The title is a play on words which crosses the Biblical city of Gomorrah and the name of the Neopolitan mafia ‘Camorra’, and was a damning indictment of the activities of the Camorra and the often unexpected areas their illegal activities have stretched to and influenced. On the surface it’s a powerful and brave film which dares to take on the Camorra – Roberto Saviano, whose non-fiction book the film was based on, had already been forced to flee into police protection.
