I was especially interested in this film after having watched both the movie Gomorrah, and the two season TV series Gomorrah based on the movie on Netflix. Gomorrah is based on the Camorra crime organization based in Naples. Having only been familiar with the Sicilian mafia, I had not heard of the Camorra or the lesser known (but larger and wealthier) 'Ndrangheta based in Calabria.
The haunting music, and emotional impact of this movie is compelling, and it was interesting to view this from the perspective of the bodyguards. I will say, however that if any one of these crime families is out to get you, then basically you can say goodbye, and no amount of bodyguards will help you. The rare exception may be Naples native and former journalist, Roberto Saviano, the author of Gomorrah, who has remained in hiding since the book was originally published in Italy in 2006, and is constantly attended by bodyguards, reportedly never staying in the same place for more than 48 hours at a time, although he has been occasionally interviewed.
If anyone has any doubts about the lengths to which these powerful crime families will go to take you out, then remember how mob prosecutor Giovanni Falcone, his wife Francesca, his driver and five members of his security detail were killed in 1992 in an ingenious way while driving from Palermo, and later his colleague, Paolo Borsellino,who was murdered only two months later.
It takes a lot of courage to be a bodyguard to a target in Italy. This movie is a must watch, you won;t regret it!
