Cidade de Deus / City of God (2002)

Set in the ‘favelas’ or slums of Rio de Janiero, where drug gangs claim childhoods. Pubescent boys live their lives in the fast lane,  wielding guns and knives. We get to know and love each gang member before they meet their bloody end. Not one you’re likely to forget in a hurry.
