Napoli, Napoli, Napoli 2009

  • Abel Ferrara
  • September 8, 2009
  • 102 mins
  • Italian
  • Drama
Weaving together fact and fiction, this docudrama performs a portrait of the often seamy underside of the city of Naples.Ferrara traveled to Italy to interview the inmates at the Naples Pozzuoli State Prison, a high security lockup for women, and with the help of a translator he allows a number of women doing time to talk about their lives before and after they were convicted. Ferrara chose to expand the short profile of the prisoners into a feature by offering a look at life in the slums of Naples and the actions of a number of law enforcement officers and social workers struggling to improve conditions for the poor, as well as adding three short fictional segments shot of digital video gear.

The interviews unfortunately do not say anything that has not already been said elsewhere. The fictional scenes do not make sense.
