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.
Later remade with Al Pacino, this 1932 gangster drama charts the rise of a ruthless crime boss modelled on notorious US mobster Al Capone.
