But plot has never been the heart of “Gomorrah,” a show that packs new emotions with an Italian flair to the point where you’re more immersed in it than you are in watching. Meticulously invested costumes, dramatic haircuts, choreography of cars and motorbikes, filming at night, Brutalist architecture of Naples housing projects, make “Gomorrah” the Ducati of gangster sagas. The landscapes and characters’ lives may have a bleak naturalistic style, but the film runs on a sense of polish and pulp romanticism – a pervasive, perceptible melancholy.
And even if the plot doesn’t hold you back, the show, based on Book of the same name by Roberto Saviano, takes a deliberate, almost severe approach to its possibly very gratifying mayhem. It rarely mentions spoilers – the episodes build to a resolution, often but not always violent, at which point the Mokadelic band’s compelling main theme begins to play and the characters walk or drive a car or scooter into the show’s eternal night.
The motive of the story from the very beginning is Genny’s Cain-and-Abel relationship, the spoiled hot son of a Camorra don, and his brother-in-law Ciro (Marco D’Amore), an outcast, child The fatal street kid possesses amazing cruelty. In essence, “Gomorrah” is the story of their love, one that has to overcome more than the usual obstacles. For example, each shot the other. Ciro also ambushed and killed Genny’s father, however, to be fair, Genny helped him do it. The turns were harsh, but the two actors, especially the easily menacing Esposito, kept things together through the most unlikely twists and turns.
It would be difficult to say anything coherent about the events of the final season without giving some of the main, further plot points, so if you don’t get the hang of it, you can stop reading here.
Brief Summary: At the end of Season 3, in a situation that defies logic, Genny unfortunately shoots Ciro, whose body is dumped in the Bay of Naples. D’Amore, also a regular director of the series, did not appear in Season 4, which focused on the taciturn Genny and Patrizia (Cristiana Dell’Anna), an attractive character who took turns leading the show. Then, the 2019 film “The Immortal,” directed by D’Amore, revealed that Ciro had survived, and it ended with his and Genny’s reunion.
