Cidade dos Homens (2007)

Written By Awir Aditya on Thursday, June 25, 2009 | 8:54 AM

Genre: Action/Drama/Crime

Starring: Douglas Silva, Darlan Cunha, Jonathan Haagensen

English title: City of Men. Based on the life of young kids living in the slums of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil and the perils that come along with leading such a life. A gang of youngsters brandishing guns rule over the slum, and all is fine until the gang leader Madrugadão's (Haagensen) sidekick betrays him and joins a rival gang to overthrow him as gang leader. Both sides go all out to build an army, one to protect what is theirs and the other to take back what they think is theirs. Two friends Acerola (Silva) and Laranjinha (Cunha) have grown up seeing guns and bloodshed at a very young age. Both of them don't know their father's and decide its time to go and uncover the truth about their past. The backdrop of this movie is very similar to another Brazilian-French movie, Cidade dos Deus aka City of God, which shares a similar name, location and story. Not a big surprise considering the fact that both the movies were made by the same producer. The movie sends out a social message towards being a good and responsible parent and the adverse effects bad parenting may have on a child.

Rating: 7.1/10
