    Impressive movie, even more impressive when you realize that most of the actors are people living in the favela who did never act before. I absolutely loved it. 7 years 11 months ago

    City of God is the real thing! Just wow, this is so much better than any crime film I've seen. The fact that it's based on true events makes it the most disturbing as well. 8 years 2 months ago
