City Of God

Anyone else seen this?

Its a Brazilian film, showing what happens in the slums and how the kids survive.

It shows how drug gangs came to rule rio, with graphic scenes showing how they took control and maintained order.

Yeah, I saw it. Very disturbing, in an all-too-real sort of way.

after watching it i thought a fare bit of it must have been exagerated purely for the movie, but then i sat through the news reel documentary on the dvd extras... they've got it pretty tough in brazil to say the least, i had no idea life was that extreme there.

great movie though, definitely in my top 10 for this year... i'm not sure what beat it to the "best foreign film" catagory at the oscars, but i would have thought this was a sure win.

Yeah it should have easily won best foreign film.


The way its put together, showing from when they were kids all the way to late teens and how the film stops to tell you the story about each character.


Very well made film with an excellent topic.
