A world away from the romanticism of The Godfather, the glamour of Goodfellas or the epic drama of Scarface, director Matteo Garrone's Cannes 2008 Grand Jury Prize-winning crime drama lifts the lid on the brutal, squalid and very violent world of organised crime. A fiction based on journalist Roberto Saviano's exposé of the mafia-like network of Naples-based organisations known as the Camorra, the film interweaves five different stories - from the 13-year-old wannabe gangster to the businessmen illegally dumping cancer-causing waste - to illustrate how the rot has infiltrated every level of society.
This brutal, disturbing crime film is based on the true story of one of France's most notorious criminals, bank robber Jacques Mesrine.
