Set in 1970's in Rio De Janiero amongst the ram shackle housing projects Cidade De Deus (City of God) its a intense film, told through the eyes of Buscape`, a boy who is too scared to become a outlaw and too smart to settle into what's expected of him in life. nothing.
He is by no means the central character to the film... more like a observer to the madness that is the life of drugs and crime that has consumed the community around him..... so its kind of handy his passion is taking photographs... After all the ultimate tool of any keen observer is a camera... and it just so happens this camera is his ticket out.
If you have not seen this movie drop what your doing right now, get up, walk swiftly to the nearest video store and contribute to the declining economy by purchasing this here dvd.
If you have watched it, well, watch it again, its awesome as shit!
