Exclusive: Reality Trailer
Gomorrah man's Big Brother satire

19 February 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

If 2008's Gomorrah rocked your boat as it did ours, you'll want to catch a glimpse of what director Matteo Garrone has in store for us next. And, as luck would have it, the trailer for Reality has landed on this very page. Prego!



Aside from being Garrone's long-awaited return to the big screen, Reality is notable also for starring Aniello Arena, an ex-gangster currently serving life sentences for a triple homicide who performed while under day release from prison.

While Garrone's brute-force thriller Gomorrah looked under the stone of Neapolitan society to uncover all manner of corruption and decay, Reality takes aim at Italy's media and celebrity culture with a satire that might be lighter on drive-by shootings and toxic waste but which is hopefully still long on punch.

Luciano (Arena) is a poor Naples fishmonger whose craving for fame sees him enter Italy's Big Brother, achieving his ambition and a whole lot more besides.

Reality is out in these parts on March 22.

Your Comments

Liked Gomorrah but not feeling this at all
Also, why are they letting a convicted murderer star in a movie whilst he is still in prison? Cheap gimmick? General apathy for human life? .. No thanks. More
