Rated 4 out of 5

“City of Men” is a Brazilian drama film released in 2007. It was directed by Paulo Morelli and written by Elena Soarez. The movie is a spin-off of the Brazilian TV series “City of Men,” which was created by Kátia Lund and Fernando Meirelles.

The film follows the lives of two friends, Acerola and Laranjinha, who grew up together in a favela (slum) in Rio de Janeiro. The story takes place a few years after the TV series, when the two friends are now young adults facing different challenges in life. Acerola is a father trying to provide for his son and keep him out of trouble, while Laranjinha is searching for his own father, whom he never met.

Throughout the film, the two friends confront the harsh realities of living in a favela, including gang violence, police brutality, and poverty. Despite these challenges, they maintain their friendship and support each other through difficult times.

“City of Men” received positive reviews for its portrayal of life in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, as well as for its performances and direction. It was Brazil’s official submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2008, but it did not receive a nomination.
