If you liked the movie City of God, then get ready, because the unofficial “sequel” is coming.
Called City of Men (Cidade dos Homens), it’s about two friends who grew up together in Rio de Janeiro. As they face the first difficulties of adulthood, they must deal with fatherhood, marriage, a missing father, a gang war, and the drug trafficking that is all around them. In a run for their lives, they will discover “a truth so terrible it threatens to break up their friendship”.
Like the first one, this one has the potential to become a cinematic masterpiece, so be on the lookout for a limited release in early 2008.
