City of God

Gritty film. Wasn't too sure what to expect having only heard that critically it was good (and you sometimes don't know if that means that the film is any good). The story centres around the street-hoods of 60s and 70s Brazil with an excellent young cast who have no problem convincing me that they could all be hoodies themselves - very well acted. Good to look at on blu-ray and worth a watch although don't expect to be entertained as such (if you get what I mean). By the way, this is a Portuguese language film so if you have any problems with subtitles, steer clear.

Awesome!!

City of God is a nice film.

City of God

City of God is another passionate piece of Latin American filmmaking, which documents a tragic period in Rio's history and highlights the horrors of life in poverty-line communities. Technically a remarkable filmmaking achievement too. Each chapter is endowed with powerful, uncompromising, beguiling and, sometimes, deceptive momentum. What seem like innocuous turns become so critical to the narrative that they tie into the ruthless idea at hand: You never see the bullet that kills you.

City of God

City of God is a very good movie, includes quite a lot of violence but true to the slums at the time and the characters are very beliveable.
