But Sando and a young gangster named Manu form an alliance and begin a gang war with Little Ze.

Cidade dos homens as quatro temporadas da série de TV( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in Portuguese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Brazilian TV series 'Cidade dos homens' is a fiery exploration of life in a chaotic Rio de Janeiro slum, seen through the eyes of Acerola (Douglas Silva) and Laranjinha (Darlan Cunha). The first episode alone is a marvel, merging the history of Napoleon with a cutting analysis of drug lords and class structure in the poverty-ridden neighborhood. The other three episodes of the first series carry on this approach, mingling social observation with rich, compelling characters. From the second series on, the show becomes less overtly political and more about Acerola and Laranjinha's passage from youth to adulthood (embracing, with humor and pathos, the adolescent boys' obsession with sex) -- though every episode has some sly or startling observation about race, wealth, and gender. Each series is filmed a year after the previous one, so the boys literally grow before our eyes; it's impossible to watch and not feel deeply involved as Acerola woos a girl named Cristiane and ends up a way-too-young father, or as an innocent prank escalates into a life-and-death struggle. Add to this the dynamic musical score of Brazilian pop and samba, and you have essential viewing
