About the Movie
Celebrated with worldwide acclaim, this powerful true story of crime and redemption has won numerous prestigious awards around the globe! The streets of the world's most notorious slum, Rio de Janeiro's "City of God" are a place where combat photographers fear to tread, police rarely go and residents are lucky if they live to the age of 20. In the midst of the oppressive crime and violence, a frail and scared young boy will grow up to discover that he can view the harsh realities of his surroundings with a different eye, the eye of an artist. In the face of impossible odds, his brave ambition to become a professional photographer becomes a window into his world and ultimately his way out!
A must see
You Should Watch this!
Greatest movie of all time.
One Of My All Time Favs!!!
This movie knocked me on the floor when I first dragged my friends to see it in the theater. I had heard it was good and was dying to see it, but my friends heard the word "subtitles" and wanted nothing to do with it. Once the film started rolling I was hooked until the final frame. It is a masterpiece of filmmaking and truly a wonderful and harrowing experience. Fernando Meirelles' directing is top notch and the acting is suburb from the whole cast! I have seen this movie a million times over and it never gets boring. Inspirational can barley scratch the surface of this film. BTW, both of my friends who saw it with me count it as one of their favorite movies of all time as well! Give it a try.
