Fernando Meirelles worked mostly with amateur actors from such camps. Leaving them to improvise to a large extent succeeded in creating this atmosphere of realism that underlies the entire film and creates a sense documentary. The way they edited the footage and connects the stories of heroes over 30 years is remarkable. More impressive, however, are scenes of battle that the originality and imagi... read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2015: April (28 movies items)

"First viewing - April 15th Yeah yeah yeah, OK, I finally watched it & it's as great as I've heard. Only thing missing was that magical 10/10 feeling I get, but cinema rarely gets this powerful. Kinda depressing subject matter, but fortunately there's enough humor and our central character to help us keep from sinking too far down. I'll be thinking about this one for a while. Just a thought: I now know of another city I can cross off my list of places to visit. Heh. Currently streaming on Netf"

"Another great gangster flick that shows the history of a slum in Brazil. Has a great cast of characters all of whom are memorable and there is not a weak link among them. Also like any great film it stays with you for days even when it is over. This scene features my favorite character in the film Knockout Ned and tells his rise. "
