A murderous gangster family epic set in post-war 1919 Burminum. 


David Bowie was a crackin fan of this seroys.


There is precious unity in this seroys since the same keffle wrote all episodes of seroys 'un an' tewthree. (This is rare.) 


Irishman Cillian Murphy's effeminate facial features (high cheekbones) usually doe lan' him vicious roles - ee played a trans-gender in  recent movie - , but eya it works an' ee is perfectly cus. 
ee 'as these "fucked look" eyes that am rather disturben an' loike moy-un, only broight aquamarine colour.




 Mr Wallace wrote sumtin  recently abart these anti-hero dramas (where yaw med ter "feel" fer the evil character) weege in the lus decade yav totally taken over movoys & tv. 
This 'un is a bit different though - well well executed.




 Thomas Shelby is the yed of the "gypsy" clan what runs the betten operation. 
ee is deadly calm an' polite, but can turn vicious in the blink of an eyelid. 
Shelby wants ter mek the bookie operation legal but a (curiously) straoight govt official is maken things solid. 
Not ter mention Shelby's unstable bruv, Arthur - part of the clan but a dangerous maddog itchen fer the leus excuse ter does hurt an' damage. 




The cindery, grimy, dark set is foundroys shooten bonny-fire ert the doors (the constant industrial heart-thump in the background) an' factoroys an' the murderous alleys of Dinky Heath, the neighbourhood they rule.


Our lad  Shelby gets ambitious an' wants ter move in on London. His gang is so vicious that the sound Italian gan' an' the Jewish 'un, deadly rivals the'er always, temporarily join forces ter dale with the newcomer on their turf.


 If this all sounds loike Boardwalk Empire, the uk-version, well, arr. only its darker an' much slower-moven. Violent yet can be extremely subtle as well. 




Australian actor of merit, Sam Neill, pulls off a wonderous Irish accent on this seroys.

One of the best series ever in my book. Absolute cracking direction , characters , plot ....everything. 
 About the street gangs in Naples
Baseductive on the book 'Comorrah '.
 Bloke who wrote it's  been under 24 hr protection for 15 years.
 Only two series made but well good !
 Subtitles for English , but it don't  take anything away from the enjoyment.
 Near Thrones standard !
