MIFF: Suburra

Drama Thriller


Gangsters and politicians in Rome violently collide over a deal that will make the waterfront into a European Las Vegas.

"Suburra" is an excellent mix of cinema... pacing, direction, music, it all works. It's a wonderful multi-narrative with spices of action, thriller, and drama, masterfully woven together with incredible grace. Packed full of so many memorable characters, some you want to jump out and throttle, and others are spellbinding who you could easily watch over and over again. If you like European cinema with a touch of Hollywood, you can't go wrong here. Molto bene.
