This movie is absolutely marvelous! totally based on the real life story, this movie is beautifully narrated and presented in chapters. Initial chapters focus on character build-up of every main character, the middle ones are based on massive drug empire and how it affects personal lives of each character, and not the least the last ones include typical gang rivalry and rise of the narrator of the movie as a daring & successful photographer. To see overall, it's just a delight to watch.
This is the best foreign film of it's genre and I think in general that I've seen. Excellent directing, screenplay, cinematography, acting and setting. The film explores in depth the slums of Rio De Janeiro during the 1970's. The film revolves around two main characters who are products of their environment that choose two completely different paths in life. Their childhood friendship keeps them connected throughout the film's plot and comes full circle in the end it goes really awesome when watched. Based on true events this film left a long lasting impression to this day. It is a unique film and the co-directors are a masterpiece. It's a true work of art that deals with the harsh realities of life.
