Suburra (Netflix 2017, Adamo Dionisi, Alessandro Borghi)


Suburra, based on the fascinating and successful novel written by Giancarlo De Cataldo and Carlo Bonini, takes inspiration from a real political scandal that broke out in the Italian capital. Suburra is however a prequel, set a few years before the real events took place. Church, politics, organized crime, local gangs and real estate developers collide and blur the lines between the legal and the illicit and their quest for power is the overriding theme in this unique crime thriller.
