Tropa de Elite

110 minutes 2007 8.0

The Brazilian action film Tropa de Elite brutally depicts the special forces of the police being trained to kill rather than arrest in Rio de Janeiro's most criminally charged areas.

Two childhood friends join the force as new recruits and are thrown into a world full of violence, drugs, and gang warfare. They are forced to choose between corruption or ideals and soon a mutual struggle threatens to tear their lifelong friendships and their families apart. 

Tropa de Elite was awarded the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2008.
