City of God ... #15

Day #15, Movie #15

aka Cidade de Deus, this is the most exciting foreign movie I've ever seen!

Based on a true story, City of  God keeps it real throughout; from the environment to the story down to the characters (who made the movie spectacular), a breathtaking movie experience.

The opening scene for me is epic, a bunch of thugs chasing a runaway chicken with guns ... now that's wicked comedy!

Finally after research (a little) I found out that this 2002 Brazilian crime drama won fifty-five awards in total (a BAFTA for Best editing and zero Oscars after receiving five nominations ... which is disappointing).

FYI - There is no better description than watching the movie. Cheers!
