Cidade dos Homens

Paulo Morelli Brazil, 2007

flamingo jones's rating of the film City of Men

Was quite disappointed that this film veered away from the authenticity and badinage of CITY OF GOD and CITY OF MEN (TV series) towards a Lifetime movie "feel good" structure. Morelli becomes superficial instead of digging deeper into the reality of favela existence in modern Brazil.
