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

My 25 Favorite Movies of All Time (25 movies items)

"I remember seeing this movie listed in a book titled "1000 Movies to See Before You Die" and I definitely agree you need to see this before you die. It's a Brazilian movie about a dangerous neighborhood that is filled with violence and drugs. This boy named Rocket is trying to escape from these streets by using his love of photography. But this is not just Rocket's story, there are so many characters that are great in this movie it is hard to pick just one. But if I had to choose I would go with"

Zaishe's 2013 movie diary (89 movies items)

"City of God has a brilliant chicken catching scene that I have never seen, done at that exceptional level, in any other movie. It is about struggle, love, passion and getting to do what you want to do all the while knowing that if you fail, death is going to embrace you. I highly recommend this movie to all those people who like to watch beautifully shot movies with a crafted screenplay and story that touches one's heart. my most favorite movie quote Sandro Cenoura: Have you lost your mind"

"21.1 Hieno tositapahtumiin perustuva tarina Brasilian flaveloista. Rajua katseltavaa kun 7v pikkupojat pistää menemään revolverit kourassa ja lahtaa vastaantulijoita, vaan koska kaikki tekee niin ja rahaa on saatava."
