Piranhas – English subtitles

Ketelhuis Expat

Jeugdbende in Napels

Fifteen-year-old boys race their scooters through the narrow streets of their own Sanità neighbourhood in Naples. They are intrepid daredevils who want to make easy money and gain power to try and impress their ‘heroes’ of the Neapolitan Camorra.

Piranhas is based on the novel La paranza dei bamibini by the successful Neapolitan writer Roberto Saviano (known for Gomorrah), who also wrote the scenario for the film, awarded with the Silver Bear in Berlin.
