I liked the movie. At the beginning it started as documentary as some guy was talking about the tough conditions in Brazil. What actually impressed me was that as the guy mentioned all the kid actors including the main character Pixote played by Fernando Ramos Da Silva were coming from the real world – from the poorest neighborhoods, with one mission in life – to survive.

(MU) Great rediscovery of the film project represened by Scorsese. Intimacy, a world apart in the margins of Sao Paulo and Rio, as credible as natural, the grain, the texture, the light, the conversations of the bunch of kids...

Pixote, a 10-year-old runaway boy, is arrested on the streets of Sao Paulo during a police round-up homeless people. Pixote endures torture, degradation and corruption at a local youth detention center where two of the runaways are murdered by policemen who frame Lilica, a 17-year-old transvesite hustler. Pixote helps Lilica and three other boys escape where they make their living by the life of crime which only escalates to more violence and death.

"9.8. Brasilian katuelämästä kertovassa elokuvassa pamautetaan kaduilla elävien lasten arki päin katsojan naamaa melkoisen inhottavalla tavalla. Katulapsia majoittavat laitokset eivät ole yhtään parempia paikkoja, ja elämä ulkopuolella on pelkkää rikollisten hyväksikäytetävänä olemista, koska alaikäisiä ei voida laittaa rikosoikeudelliseen vastuuseen samalla tavalla kuin aikuisia. Kuvastoltaan rujo elokuva onnistuu kertomaan sanomansa hyvin. Prostituoidun vessassa nähtävä v"
