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.

The tale tells the stories of many characters whose lives sometimes intersect. However, all is seen through the eyes of a singular narrator: Busca-Pé, a poor black youth too frail and scared to become an outlaw but also to smart to be content with underpaid, menial jobs.

1001 Movies ... my own version (2000's) (73 movies items)

" Notes: Honestly, I was just completely blown away and I would go as far as saying that it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. First of all, the way it was shot was really impressive. Indeed, this movie is really stylized but also quite realistic at the same time which is something rather unique, it has some complex shots and nice visuals but it remains raw at the core. But it is not one of those movies with some nice visuals but rather tedious, no, here, the story keeps you on the edge"
