Welcome to the world's most notorious slum: Rio de Janeiro's 'City of God.' A place where combat photographers fear to tread, where Police rarely go, and residents are lucky if they live to the age of 20. This is the true story of a young man who grew up on these streets and whose ambition as a photographer is our window in and ultimately may be his only way out. [Original Release 2002] (Miramax)

This violent story could be gloomy, but the narrator who grew up in the slum sees the happiness of living there, and even murder and trafficking feels innocuous. This bubbling society is filmed with gorgeous cinematography, and the camera moves as if it was one of the great actors present in every scene. After a while the viewer is part of the city of god and when the movie is over, you are left with a full array of emotions and thought on all the people you met and experiences you lived there.

It's the production that really makes this film what it is: a symphony of a city God has overlooked, with any traces of light dying or being diverted through frantic, fragmented shots of always ugly chaos no matter what color feelings they're behind. It's easy to get swept away in this maelstrom, and with your focus always being shifted you can't make any sense of it either. You're just watching the storm play out. True, colorful film making evolves City of God's familiar story and characters.
