Trivia

Suburra was a vast and populous district of ancient Rome. Since the population of the lower part of the district was constituted of urban underclass which lived in miserable conditions, although overlooking a monumental area and public services, the term suburra still has, in the common language, the generic meaning of an infamous place, theater of crimes and immorality.

When in Rome, Do as Romans do-Excellent Cinema
19 April 2016 | by ajit2106See all my reviews

Stefano Sollima Suburra is astounding and remarkable with a plot revolving around many lives and organized crime in Rome.

Suburra was the name of a suburb of Ancient Rome. Many mafia families, politicians and gangsters covet for an ambitious project to be passed by the law which will fill their pocket with money and lives of their next generation will be in complete leisure. In order to achieve this goad everyone has to surpass the basic rule of humankind and go on a rampage of deceit and treachery.

The screenplay and narration is top notch, it gives a motivation and development for each character. As the repercussion is going to affect many lives, the deeds of characters are well defined.

Every actor has done a tremendous job as we see right emotions and expressions at the right place. The background score adds a great feel to the scenes and it flows with the emotions of the audience. The production value and technical area of the film is of high quality.

Overall, it is a tale love, treachery, corruption and betrayal. Stefano Sollima has done a noteworthy direction putting several lives together and entangling them into each other.
