The latest adventure from Italian brothers Marco and Antonio Manetti is an exploration of the power of love to sway even the hardest of hearts – but also a vibrant homage to Italy's southern city Naples.The coastal city at the foot of Mount Vesuvius is the heartland of the ruthless Camorra organised crime syndicate, which was immortalised in Roberto Saviano's bestselling 2008 film "Gomorrah" and in a popular spin-off television series.Competing for the prized Golden Lion under its Italian title "Ammore e malavita," the film may hope to defend Naples but it also revels in laughing at Neapolitans – who are all too quick to cash-in on the the city's mafia cliche.Naples is a city they strongly believe deserves to be known for more than the shootouts.
