Could not agree more.
You should all watch the television serie "City of Men". It's the same thing, but it is a serie of about two boys living in the favela. Same producers and stuff.
There is also a movie called "City of Men", but I reccomend you to watch the television series first!
Both City of Men and City of God is great, love this films!
I didn't realise it was a book too.
Whos the author?
