    Subject: I am from Brazil - This is THE BEST MOVIE i know
    Date: Dec 22, 2004
    Sender: Marcelo SouzaPrevious | Next

    Hi there Guy. I am a Carioca (Carioca is the people who borns in Rio de Janeiro). I don't live on the jungle or on the slums. But i lived very near to City of God. The place is not exactly full of gangs nower days. But the history of the movie is a pathwork of many histories tied together with a BEAUTFULL concept and style. Incredible script, and wonderfull direction. Fernando Meirelles is a GENIUS. This guy deserve many oscars. And this movie is the best movie i've ever seen on the genre. It's, for sure one of the TOP 5 BEST movies i've seen in my entire life. The movie is magic. The cuts was perfect, the treatment, colors, sound design, music (all made in Brazil, by brazilian artists, Djs and Producers), the actors are the best thing on the movie. I don't know if you guys knows about the actors, but 99% of them, are boy from the slums, without ANY study, and actors classes. And they are PERFECT on the screen. Each one gives his soul on the project and many of then stills living on the slums of Rio. Very Sad reality. For another site, we have tons of Trash movies with bad actors, and these actors are living in Hollywood, bervely hills, california, movin' around with his ferraris, and porsches, and receiving tons of money to role on bad movies. Sad. Sad. The movie is INCREDIBLE. Go on and see it. You will like it a LOT. IT's a masterpiece. My wife hates policial moves, with blood, etc...She LOVES City of God, because the movie is perfectly well done.
