Alabada por muchos, tanto por su historia y por la realización de la misma, Ciudad de Dios es de las pocas películas latinoamericanas que logran captar casi cada aspecto de la vida dentro del mundo del crimen. Muy parecido a Goodfellas o el padrino, solo que en un lugar distinto, las favelas brasileñas, y su aproximación a lo que sería estar a estos lugares es interesante.La obra posee numero... read more

I'm sure this is a very good it movie, for a gangster movie. But to me, it takes a lot for it to elevate to anything more. I can't get attached to people in these kind of films, no matter how sad a background, or what circumstances put them there. Whether it hereditary family war, mafia, etc. I just never end up caring about what happens to the characters. And this was no different, just beca... read more

A Brazilian masterwork

“Such an amazing film that deserves the accolades and acclaimed hype it's garnered. One of the best foreign language films there is and one of the best films personally seen recently, after a long time of being on my to see list but taking a while to get round to it due to being so busy and going through a difficult phase.

Perhaps 'City of God' is not for everybody. It is not some audience members' idea of being entertaining, and is pretty unflinching, uncompromising and challenges the viewer. It does, with that being said, a superlative job bringing those qualities to life, and there are others, including myself, who judge films by what they set out to do rather than just wanting to be "entertained". There are many hugely entertaining films, while there are others that are clearl” read more

El Zumbador posted a review 1 year, 11 months ago

“Al menos puedo entender porqué Cidade de Deus es tan aclamada como si de una obra magnánima se tratase, al fin y al cabo, tiene todo lo que me gusta de las historias sobre crimen; la pérdida de la humanidad a medida que más te vas metiendo en el mundo criminal, la gravedad de los peligros que se corren al involucrarte con toda esa gente podrida, el cómo a la larga todo ese mundillo te termina por destruir, etc.

Todos estos temas suenan realmente excelentes, y lo son, y hasta diría que genuinamente la película logra de gran manera el plasmar no solo el podrido ambiente de aquellas favelas llenas de miseria y brutalidad, sino lo que verdaderamente implicaba el pertenecer a aquellas pandillas.

La mirada que ofrece Cidade de Deus es una bastante interesante, ya que e” read more
