I saw the Brazilian movie, City of God, a movie about young crime and gangs in Brazil.  I just want to say what an incredible movie this is.  I'm not sure if its out in America, or already has been and i missed the discussion about it, but i urge you all to go at see it in your cinema now, i know its out here in england so you fellow Blighties better go out and see it.

Its set in a slum in Brazil, called the City of God.  They did not use actors but actual children of the slums.  It tells its story through a brilliant character called 'Rocket,' and it travels through three decades to get to its finale, 60's 70's 80's.  The camera is clever, but not over the top like of a lot of debutant directors try to use.  The characters are all beautiful.  There is no real message behind the movie, its based (sort of,) around a real story, its just opens your eyes to the violence of Brazil, it doesn't try and change anything its just there to inform you, which is what makes it so wonderful.  The soundtrack is also stunning, i couldn't recommend a movie more, and i really should edit my top ten movies ever for this, cause it really will go down as a classic, its better than Pulp Fiction, that’s a big a compliment as you can get.

thanks for reading, but please for your own sakes go out and see this movie

By the amount of replies that i am getting here, i can pretty much tell that none of you people have gone out to see this movie, do if not for your own enlightenment than for my sanity

Thanks for the tip.  It should be done more often, giving good advice to people.  I mean advice, I don't know yet about the 'good' part.  But I believe you on your word...

it will surpass all your expectations my friend. I hate to put too much pressure on the movie.  But sit back forget all my comments and let its brilliance sink.  Do you both live in Paris?

I finally saw the movie. It's just EXCELENT.
What a great movie indeed.

The actors are great (they're no actor's, they're real guys picked from the real city), the music is great, and above all the photography is amazing.

To me it's 2003's best surprise.

I would like to thanks Caius who gave us the tip.

WHAT A GREAT MOVIE.
