City of god
CITY OF GOD [Brazil] – THE DRAMATIC CHOICE: Electrifying, incendiary, provocative are just some of the words you will find in a typical review of City of God, co-directed by Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund. All of these words and more hold true. At a basic level, this is the story of two boys being caught up in gang culture of Rio’s favelas. The film tells its tale with incredible bravura – albeit a brutal one. It is as if Scorsese’s Goodfellas had been reimagined with child mobsters on Rio’s most poverty-struck backstreets. amazon.co.uk
