City of God

130 minutes 2002 8.6

Buscapé and Zé grew up in the same slum, marked by poverty and violence, but their life trajectories are to be diametrically opposed. While Buscapé strives for a normal life as a photographer, Zé embraces the culture he was swept into as a teenager – as a drug dealer and gang leader.

Nominated for four Academy Awards, City of God is the unmistakable, brutal depiction of life in Rio de Janeiro's underworld and has impressed audiences and critics alike with its unvarnished honesty.
