Official US Trailer for Oscar Hopeful Italian Film Gomorrah
Those that follow the foreign line-up closely have probably heard a lot about Gomorrah, an Italian mafia movie that won the Grand Prize (not the Palme d'Or) at Cannes earlier this year. The film is a violent inside look at Italy's most dangerous modern-day crime families. I actually saw Gomorrah back at the AFI Fest in November and honestly really did not like it at all. It's a very bitter and dry film that doesn't have an actual plot, it's just a series of very weird stories about various young members of this crime family. However, it is winning plenty of awards, so I'll feature this trailer anyway for those that might be interested.

Gomorrah is both written and directed by Italian filmmaker Matteo Garrone, of Guests, Roman Summer, The Embalmer, and First Love previously. The screenplay was written by Garrone as well as Maurizio Braucci, Ugo Chiti, Gianni Di Gregorio, Massimo Gaudioso, and Roberto Saviano. The film is based on Roberto Saviano's controversial book of the same name. Gomorrah first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was picked up in the US by IFC Films. It will play in limited theaters starting on February 13th.
