My second movie tip is going to be a movie by Fernando Meirelles... CITY OF GOD
Time: 21 century
Where?: Rio de Janeiro
What?: This is the story of two boys groing up in the "City of God" a slum of Rio. One of the boys is becoming a photographer while the other one is going to be a drugdeealer.
If you like drama this is the movie for you. This movie deals with the topic of poverty and is absolutely worth watching. Most of the actors in this movie were amateurs and did very very well.
Here is, as always the trailer:
