"Gomorra," the film based on Roberto Saviano's bestselling book by the same name, comes to the Landmark Theater in Atlanta on Fri., March 13, and will run for a week.
I've written a few times here about the book and the movie, which opened last week in New York and Los Angeles. And the movie has now been reviewed in quite a few places in the U.S. (I provided a link to the review in the New York Times last week).
All of the reviews have been positive -- I think American reviewers are just so stunned by what they see. I think Ciambellina will be a bit stunned by what she sees even though she's read the book. That's because I think violence is even more unbearable to watch on-screen when you know it's true.
What happens in "Gomorra" really happens in some of the neighborhoods of Naples and Caserta.
Anyway, here's a link to a review of "Gomorra" in The New Yorker:
I'm so glad the film is coming to Atlanta! I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of Italian films in Atlanta.
Ci vediamo al cinema!
