Exhilarating, unrelenting and furiously authentic, Fernando Mereilles' drama follows two brothers as they take different paths to adulthood in the favelas of Rio De Janeiro. With gangs ruling the streets, crime is the easiest way to makes ends meet... and end up dead. Nominated for four Oscars but criminally winning none, it's a dizzying look at life on the knife's edge.
