Finally it is time for the Swedish premiere of “Camorrans barn” (“La Paranza dei bambini”) directed by Claudio Giovannesi and distributed by Edge Entertainment. The movie won a Silver Bear for best script at the Berlinale – Berlin International Film Festival.
“Camorrans barn” is a thrilling story set in Naples. It is based on Roberto Saviano’s (Gomorra) best-selling book “Blodsleken” published in Sweden by Brombergs Bokförlag in 2017 with the support of C.M. Lerici Foundation.
“Camorrans barn” charts the descent into organized crime of a naïve group of 15-year-old pals led by the inexperienced but cocksure Nicola (Francesco Di Napoli). Behind his clean-cut face, neat haircut and designer clothes lies a dangerously small brain. Imagining himself as the savior of the Sanità neighbourhood where he lives with his mom and little brother, he goes from dealing marijuana for one local gang to bartering for guns, rifles and automatic weapons with another and finally, absurdly, declares war on all those left standing for the crown of top dog.
