I don't know any Gomorrah fan that would launch into the fifth season without watching the spin-off film.

As it serves both as a prequel (Ciro's backstory) and a sequel to the events following the climax of the third season.

Ciro, the Immortal.

You say this but I’ve been watching gomorra over the last god knows how many years and can barely remember the various plot lines apart from Ciro and Geni don’t really like each other - I’m praying there’s a good 20 minute recap before the next series starts!!

Very good. I watched the four seasons and just watched the film this morning. So all ready for season five next month.

Watched all four seasons of Gomorrah. Where can I find the film (l'immortal ?) Do I need to watch this before season five?

L’Immortale is available on DVD (with English subtitles). Not sure about streaming.

It’s not a bad film but not essential viewing. And I can’t see why it would be necessary to watch it before viewing Season 5.

If you are looking for something similar, Romanzo Criminale is a great series.

The original movie Gomorrah is superb, by the way, as is Roberto Saviano’s book that it was based on.

Suburra is another fine film in a similar vein.

Lastly, the series ZeroZeroZero is also very much worth checking out. Though it takes a bit if getting into, stick with it if you give it a go, as it really takes off in episode 5.

I've started watching "The OA" on Netflix - it's a science fiction story written (at least in part) by Brit Marling. I've only watched the first 3 episodes - but I really like it so far.
===
On the other hand... the series seems derivate; numerous elements are reminiscent of Marling's earlier film, "The Sound of My Voice."
===
That said, "Sound of My Voice" is very enjoyable - stream this movie if you like Sci Fi.
===
And although OA has some elements in common with "Sound of My Voice" - it's not at all a copy-cat.
===
I'm enjoying "The OA" on Netflix - and if you like Sci Fi - I think you'll like this series too.
I love Brit Marling's stuff and only yesterday I checked on if there's a Season 3 of OA due out, but doesn't look promising, unfortunately.

Been watching Dead Mountain. Excellent.
True story.

Russian. In the Ural Mountains, nine students go on a ski hike, but never return. Local investigators must piece together what happened to them when their bodies are found a month later.
