City Of God the best movie...

Semalam tengah boring duk lepak di rumah, teringat plak ngan movie yang aku dah download kat ternet, yang disimpan dalam pendrive aku. Masih tersemat dalam kocek seluar kerja aku yang belum basuh2 lagi tue hehehehe.
“Cidade de Deus” atau “City of God” (2002). Arahan oleh Fernando Meirelles yang diangkat dari kisah nyata. Filem Brazil. First time aku layan filem dari Brazil ni terus teruja nak tengok filem lain buatan diorang. Bebudak kecik tak leh tengok, banyak sangat element ganas, adult scene mostly banyak adegan budak hingusan tahap umur 5-12 tahun isap dadah dan dah start bunuh orang.

Malas nak tulis summary banyak2... ni aku copy dari imdb jer... dari 10 bintang aku bagi 9/10..best rugi tak tengok.

Cidade de Deus (City of God) is a housing project built in the 1960’s
that–in the early 80’s–became one of the most dangerous places in Rio
de Janeiro. The tale tells the stories of many characters whose lives
sometimes intersect. However, all is seen through the eyes of a
singular narrator: Buscapé, a poor black youth too frail and scared to
become an outlaw but also too smart to be content with underpaid,
menial jobs. He grows up in a very violent environment. The odds are
all against him. But Buscapé soon discovers that he can see reality
differently than others. His redemption is that he’s been given an
artist’s point of view as a keen-eyed photographer. As Buscapé is not
the real protagonist of the film–only the narrator–he is not the one
who makes the decisions that will determine the sequence of events.
Nevertheless, not only his life is attached to what happens in the
story, but it is also through Buscapé’s perspective of life that one
can understand the complicated layers and humanity of a world,
apparently condemned to endless violence.
