Gomorrah (R2/UK BD) in February - Artwork added

Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Gomorrah on 9th February 2009. 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.

Five stories are woven together in this violent scenario, set in a cruel and ostensibly fictional world, but one that is deeply rooted in reality.

Directed by Matteo Garrone, Gomorrah won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes this year.

Available on 2-Disc DVD (£19.99 RRP) and Blu-ray Disc (£24.99 RRP), extras on both include:

  • Trailer
  • Interview with Roberto Saviano
  • Interview with Toni Servillo, Salvatore Cantalupo, Gianfelice Imparato
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gomorrah – 5 Stories: Making Of featurette
