Based on the novel by Roberto Saviano ("Gomorrah"), PIRANHAS follows fifteen year-old Nicola (newcomer Francesco Di Napoli) who lives with his mother and younger brother in the Sanità neighborhood of Naples, a place that has been controlled by the Camorra mafia for centuries. Dreaming of a life lush with designer clothing and elite nightclub bottle service, Nicola and his group of friends begin selling drugs, an entryway into the violent, power-hungry world of crime that begins to threaten their innocence, relationships, and safety of their families.

"A gripping modern riff on "Goodfellas" that follows an ambitious kid as he chews his way up the ranks of Naples' teenage gangsters. "
David Ehrlich - INDIEWIRE

"There is something so perceptive in the way Giovannesi zeroes in on these embryonic mafia bosses–especially as PIRANAHS ventures into the kids’ relationship with the adult world around them–which makes for an enjoyable if patchy 105-minute ride"
Leonardo Goi - THE FILM STAGE

"PIRANHAS is no documentary, but it plays out with a deadpan style that is deeply unsettling."
Michael O'Sullivan - WASHINGTON POST
