9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Macht, Geld, Blut. Damit werden die Einwohner der Provinzen von Neapel und Caserta tagtäglich konfrontiert. Nur eine privilegierte Minderheit kann überhaupt daran denken, ein "normales" Leben zu führen. GOMORRHA nimmt den Zuschauer mit in die kriminelle Welt kleiner und großer Bosse, die fast wie aus Brian De Palmas Scarface zu kommen scheinen und zeigt ein Land, das dem gängigen romantischen Italienbild so gar nicht entspricht. Der Film basiert auf dem aufsehenerregenden Weltbestseller des jungen italienischen Autors Roberto Saviano. Gedreht wurde an Originalschauplätzen rund um Neapel. Auf dem Filmfestival in Cannes mit dem Großen Preis der Jury ausgezeichnet, verzeichnete GOMORRHA in Italien bis dato über zwei Millionen Besucher. Emotional bewegend und visuell von beeindruckender Gradlinigkeit und Kraft: Eine filmische Kriegserklärung an das organisierte Verbrechen!
