City of God (Graded)

The main character in Cidade de Deus is not a person. It is a place. Cidade de Deus is a poor housing project started in the 60's that became one of the most dangerous places in Rio de Janeiro by the beginning of the 80's.

In order to tell the story of the place the film shows us the stories of many characters. But all is seen through the eyes of the narrator: Busca-Pé (Rocket), a poor black kid too frail & scared to become an outlaw but also to smart to be content with life in the slums.

Grade: A +
