Topic: City of God
There are many things that I like about this movie. The stroyline is based on a novel by Paulo Lins (which again is based on true stories) and the actors are people who actualy live in Rio's favelas.
They delivered such an outstanding performance after only 6 months of acting lessons which is very remarkable and I love the fact that this "project" gave very poor people a chance to show how good they are at acting (and therfore giving them an opportunity to imorve the conditions of their lives/careers).
In the end of the movie there is original footage of several characters that have been covered by the story which is another nice component of the movie.
Other details like the camrea angles, the editing and the corresponing music are also great in my opinion.
If you haven't seen this movie yet I'd stronlgy recommend it, but be warned: it's a very violent, brutal and sometimes shocking movie (especialy the scenes where very young steet children are involved).
All the best
