Quick overview (from Wikipedia)

City of Men (Portuguese: Cidade dos Homens) is a Brazilian television programme created by K?a Lund and Fernando Meirelles, the directors of the film City of God. The mini-series was watched by 35 million viewers in Brazil and was released internationally on DVD shortly after the film. In 2007, a feature length film based on the series (produced by Fox and TV Globo) was released.

It is often cited as a 'spin-off' of the film; City of Men is a less violent and more light-hearted affair with dramedy elements (the film adaptation is darker, sharing its roots of City of God). However, the two do share some common aspects: the directors, some of the actors, and the setting of the Brazilian favela (slum) with its background of gangsters and poverty.

The programme tells the stories of Luis Claud?and Uolace, better known by their nicknames Acerola (Douglas Silva) and Laranjinha (Darlan Cunha), respectively, who are two best friends who live in a notorious Rio slum, in a community of drug-dealers, hustlers, and teenagers struggling to fulfill their dreams.

Saw this yesterday and just HAD to pick it up, i've watched City of God a few times now and really enjoy the film. The series is just another great addition to the collection!

Edit - I dont know how I managed to put it under Asda Entertainement >.<

City of God was a fantastic film and i will never understand that it didn't get the Oscar. I have seen a few episodes of City of Men and while not as good as City of God they are enjoyable. Still have to see the new movie though...
