Gomorrah

 (2008)

Gomorrah Blu-ray comes close to perfection with top scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

Made up of six short episodes with six main characters--all revolving around the four-sided criminality between the port of Naples, Scampia, Castelvolturno and Terzigno, and based on the best selling book by Roberto Saviano, 'Gomorrah' is a story of power, money and blood. These are the “values” that the residents of the province of Naples and Caserta confront every day; they have practically no choice, and are forced to obey the rules of the “system”- the Gomorra. Only a lucky few can even think of leading a “normal” life. The stories are woven together in this violent scenario, set in a cruel and ostensibly fictional world, but one that is deeply rooted in reality.

For more about Gomorrah and the Gomorrah Blu-ray release, see Gomorrah Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Salvatore Cantalupo, Gianfelice Imparato, Maria Nazionale, Toni Servillo, Gigio Morra, Salvatore Abruzzese
Director: Matteo Garrone

Gomorrah Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Matteo Garrone's Gomorrah arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

Supervised and approved by director Matteo Garrone and director of photography Marco Onorato, this new high-definition transfer has been made from a digital intermediate. Dirt, debris, chemical stains, and warps have been manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system.

Gomorrah looks gritty, at times even dirty. During each of the different stories, contrast varies greatly. Clarity and detail are also effectively manipulated. As intended, the color-scheme is wild, almost impossible to describe with simple words. As result, large portions of Gomorrah convey strong documentary-like look, which fits the aura of the film perfectly. Disturbing scratches, debris, or dirt are nowhere to be seen.

For the record, Criterion's transfer looks very similar to that used by Optimum Home Entertainment in the UK for their Blu-ray release. Sharpness and contrast appear just a tiny bit better on the Criterion transfer during selected scenes. Overall, however, I must say that both transfers look incredibly strong. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, unless you have a native Region-A or Region-Free player, you won't be able to access its content).


Gomorrah Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Italian DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

Gomorrah features a fully digital soundtrack. The audio for this Blu-ray release has been mastered at 24-bit from the original audio master using Pro Tools HD.

In my review for the UK Blu-ray release of Gomorrah, I noted how notably impressed I was with the audio treatment. Well, the Italian DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track featured on Criterion's Blu-ray release of Gomorrah is just as remarkable. It is remarkably strong, with excellent surround activity and great dynamic amplitude. The dialog, in particular, is crisp and very easy to follow (though, I would not say it is easy to understand, considering the type of dialect spoken throughout most of the film).
