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 is a great film

This is in my top ten favourite movies of all time. Genius stuff.

Cheers Andy, my DVD of this is about worn out so this will be a welcomed update.

amazing movie

Great film. If you don't usually like foreign language films I'd still give this a try. I've lent my copy to a few friends who don't usually look past something loud and crass like Transformers or The Avengers and they loved it.

great film

Im not a fan of subs in films, but this film... Top 10, if not top 5!

World beater. Story telling at its best.

There's not a lot you can say to describe this film.
It's simply a fantastic film that has you engrossed in it from start to finish.

Ordered, brilliant film a must see!

This film is pants.

Nice deal.
Thanks alot for sharing

Am abit late, but I copped one too.

Arrived today, and can say after watching the DVD 15+ times over the years, the Blu Ray version of this is a massive improvement in the visual department. 10/10
