Youth gangs took over the slums of Rio de Janeiro during the 1960s and didn't relinquish their stronghold until the mid-1980s. Only a sucker wouldn't have turned to crime and this is exactly how naive teen Rocket (Alexandre Rodrigues) views himself. His attempts in illegal activity fail as he finds potential victims too friendly. Equally unsuccessful in love, he regularly fails to lose his virginity. Blood spills throughout the streets of the Cidade de Deus as gang leader Li'l Ze (Douglas Silva) is challenged by local druglords and a gang of pre-teens known as the Runts.

Nominated for Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2004 Oscars.

This film has probably passed alot of people by but i have to say this the best foreign film i have ever watched, 5 star all the way.
IMHO this has got to be one of the best films ever, the fact you have subtitles makes you pay more attention!
