Movie Info

Based on the novel by Roberto Saviano (Gomorrah), PIRANHAS follows fifteen year-old Nicola (newcomer Francesco Di Napoli) who lives with his mother and younger brother in the SanitaĚ neighborhood of Naples, a place that has been controlled by the Camorra mafia for centuries. Dreaming of a life lush with designer clothing and elite nightclub bottle service, Nicola and his naive group of friends begin selling drugs, an entryway into the violent, power-hungry world of crime that begins to threaten their innocence, relationships, and safety of their families.

  • [Its issues feel] a small complaint for a crime film that's thankfully more interested in humans than mythmaking.

  • [Claudio] Giovannesi narrates in a vibrant way the rise to power. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • Piranhas plays more like a teen drama in which organized crime is a backdrop. Director Claudio Giovannesi uses a fluid camera to track this mini-gang, holding us to their perspective.

  • The well-made "Piranhas" ("La paranza dei bambini") follows a roving band of out-of-control teenagers (some even younger) carrying out juvenile crimes in Naples, Italy, which is a city of extreme conditions, chaotic energy, and deep secrets.
