A story set in the 90s and in the outskirts of Rome to Ostia, the same places of the films of Pasolini. His characters, in the '90s, seem to belong to a world that revolves around hedonism.... See full summary »
The incredible true story behind the most controversial Italian court cases in recent years. Stefano Cucchi was arrested for a minor crime and mysteriously found dead during his detention. In one week's time, a family is changed forever.
In 2011, Ostia is the subject of a giant real estate project intended to make the harbor of Ancient Rome the Las Vegas of today. But the place soon becomes a battlefield where criminals and politicians either join forces cynically or fight each other ruthlessly. The infernal showdown will last seven days, claiming many lives.Written by
Right up there with the very best gangster movies.
A couple of years a go it was Scandinavian TV that was all the rage and now , thanks to the brilliant Gomorrah it seems to be Italian language mafia based TV that is the in thing. Suburra is in the same mould as Gomorrah although the protagonists are a little higher up the food chain . This is the story a politician who gets caught up with the local mafia when he asks someone to help him sort a problem that involves a dead girl in his hotel room. Firstly let me say this film looks stunning. The cinematography is breathtaking at times and it's complimented by a fantastic soundtrack from M83. There are some good performances especially from Pierfrancesco Favino (Malgradi ) and Alessandro Borghi (number 8) who I think we might be seeing more of in the future. Suburra is a film that will stay in the memory for a very long time. Highly Recommended.
