Many exciting and dangerous events in this exciting series. The series begins its events through a wide range of criminal acts and plans. In Naples, Italy there is a huge crime organization called Gomorra, the cruel crime organization in Naples led by Pietro Savastano, the evil head. The right man for Pietro is Siro de Marzio. There may be internal conflict when Siro enters a real test of faith in his family when he realizes Don Pietro's desire to maintain his power. Despite all this, Siro feels he is fully committed to obeying Don Pietro's orders while protecting his son Genie, who will take over instead of Don Pietro. It may not have been easy for Siro when his conflict increases.
The deliberate hindrance of characterization, along with the show's narrative and literal opacity, mostly makes for 12 hours of alienation. It makes you realize how dull a bird's-eye view probably is most of the time.
A dark and brutal series based on journalist Roberto Saviano's nonfiction book of the same name, Gomorrah carefully and beautifully depicts the far-reaching corruption of a new -- but fictional -- Neapolitan crime syndicate.
Gomorrah is at its finest when it's exploring the petty grudges and festering resentments that its characters on all levels -- from highly positioned gangsters to low-level bag-men -- nurture with grim unhappiness.
Gomorrah is The Sopranos on steroids, presented here in Italian with subtitles and minus any symbolism about ducks, mommy issues or a fretful therapist. Honestly, the mobsters here would think Tony was a wuss and would put a bullet between his eyes.
In this series, the mob is as elemental and unavoidable as death, whose cruel finality visits these people with grisly regularity. The characters can't shake their environment -- and once "Gomorrah" puts its hooks into you, you'll feel the same way.
