I can't get enough of this movie. I have watched it over and over. I love it. I even decided to get into related works. Here is what I've found out:
If you liked City of God, you might like City of Men. It's a Brazilian TV show made by the producers of City of God, starring the actors who played Lil' Dice and Steak-n-Fries. City of Men offers an even more in-depth look at life in the Brazilian flavelas, but even beyond that it's just drat entertaining stuff.
City of God was based on a book by Paulo Lins. The English translation finally gets published at the end of this month! I've already pre-ordered it--and again--if you want to see an even more in-depth look at slum life, I suggest you pick it up.
