Product Details


Product Description

From the Contributor

"If you haven’t been watching this Brazilian show, you’re missing something energetic, political, loving and wonderfully creative. We can’t say enough good things about the young actors, the off-the-rails editing style and the way the show can make a simple, teenage function—like tonight’s funk dance party—feel like a major world event. The dialogue moves quickly, so the subtitles do, too, but do yourself a favor and pay attention. City is worth the effort." – Time Out, Chicago

Product Description

Best buddies Acerola and Laranjinha, about to turn 18, discover things about their missing fathers' pasts which will shatter their solid friendship, in the middle of a war between rival drug gangs from Rio's favelas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch the TV Series First Jan. 23 2009
By B. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched City of Men once before I had seen the 19-episode TV series of the same name (City of Men) and after I had watched the TV series. The movie is literally one hundred times more powerful and exciting if you have watched the show and understand the characters. If you have not watched the City of Men TV show, my recommendation is to buy that before you watch this movie and if you have watched the show, this is an amazing follow up to the series that wraps things up very nicely and is for all intents and purposes an excellent final 'episode'.

Don't buy this expecting a sequel to City of God because they are not in the same league as far as production value and entertainment are concerned. The pacing is much slower and there is certainly less action, but this movie assumes that you already know what happened in the sereies. There are a healthy dose of flashbacks that take place throughout, but these are more to remind the viewer of moments that took place throughout the show than they are to catch new viewers up to speed. In closing, I highly recommend City of Men the movie, but only after you have seen the TV show, otherwise it will still be an entertaining film, but it was made to be coupled with the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great follow-up to the TV program July 27 2008
By John Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I had seen the 19-episode TV series on DVD, and I had been awaiting the movie since it was filmed in 2006.

I received the movie on DVD on July 1. I really liked the movie because it stayed true to the TV show ( mostly ) and also because it finally touched on a subject that many whom are familiar with the TV series had been wondering about: the estranged fathers of the boys.

There's not much I can say here without spoiling it. But rest assured that this movie ( preceded by watching the TV series ) is something that you will want to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful! July 11 2008

I loved City of God as disturbing as it was to watch. City of Men is very different, less graphic and more hopeful. They are both beautiful films.

4.0 out of 5 stars "It didnt look real"???? March 25 2009
By Mitch R. Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"It didnt look real"??? Have you been to a favela??? Have you even been to Rio de Janeiro or Brasil for that matter? Because by your comment it is very obvious that you haven't. This movie is relatively slower than City of God but this movie is portraying Rio currently instead of in the 70s (when City of God is set). The drug wars are still brutal but aren't year long ordeals. This movie is exceptional at showing modern day Rio and I very highly recommend it. Make sure to watch the TV show first!

3.0 out of 5 stars Must watch City of Men Television Series First!!! June 7 2013
By Spelman'04 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Although I did enjoy this movie, City of Men isn't as good as City of God. The movie only made sense to me because I watched the Brazilian Television Series BEFORE deciding to watch the movie. The TV Series (found on YouTube) fills in all the gaps that the movie skips over.
