Take the Family home if you think you’re brave enough…
The latest season that captivated international audiences on Sky Atlantic is coming out to buy for your home entertainment. Gomorrah season two not only fascinated burgeoning fans in the UK and US – the return to the Neapolitan underworld has celebrated a phenomenal impact in its home country as the highest rated show on Sky Italia.
If you haven’t had a chance to catch up with the new season, here are some reasons why it is truly unmissable for any Euro Noir fan:
The Sunday Times recently described Gomorrah as: “small-screen best-of, borrowing The Wire’s drug-dealing, Breaking Bad’s drug-making, Game of Throne’s family strife and The Sopranos’ gangsters to make something gripping that looks, flatly, fantastic.”The Guardian has also coined Gomorrah as “the ultimate Mafia show” with “plot shocks and gratuitous killing” which kept us on the edge-of-our seat for each tense and unpredictable episode.
The rave reviews from the critics praise that second chapter of the saga:
“F****** Hell! #Gomorra could be the TV series of the decade” – Ricky Gervais on Twitter
“Gomorrah is brilliant” – The Sunday Times
“Epic Italian drama” – The Sunday Express
“A dazzling success” – ⋆⋆⋆⋆ The Daily Telegraph
The gritty Italian crime drama depicting modern mob culture is based on Roberto Saviano’s infamous account of the “Camorra” syndicate and stars Fortunato Cerlino, Marco D’Amore and Salvatore Esposito. Following on from the dramatic finale of season one, Ciro Di Marzio (D’Amore); the young, right-hand man of Don Pietro Savastano (Cerlino) has risen in the ranks of the clan and is leading an alliance to take control of the city. Don Pietro and his son Genny Savastano (Esposito) find that the young prodigy is now their fierce opposition, as they furtively try to reclaim their prestige over north Naples.
