In this long-awaited follow-up to his Oscar-nominated film City Of God (2003, Best Director, Fernando Meirelles), producer Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener) returns to the Brazilian favelas to tell an inspiring tale of friendship and family on the gritty streets of Rio de Janeiro.
Growing up in a culture dictated by violence and run by street gangs, teenagers Acerola and Laranjinha have become close as brothers. With their eighteenth birthdays fast approaching, Laranjinha sets out to find the father he never met, while Acerola struggles to raise his own young son. But when they suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of a gang war, the lifelong friends are forced to confront a shocking secret from their shared past.

I have watched the brazilian TV series that came out before the movie and I must say that City of Men really succeeded in capturing even more part of the lower class life in the brazilian society. I surely can recommend this movie!
