    Great Film!! I have recommended this film to so many of friends, many thought I was crazy cause they were just not into subtitled films... After seeing this film, they now watch subtitled films & many look forward to my recommendations.

    @Shimadanilo, thanks for mentioning Elite Squad: The Enemy Within (Tropa de Elite 2: o inimigo agora é outro), looking forward to watching it and passing it on to others

    I'm very happy to see comments about a movie of my country on this site. City of God (Cidade de Deus) is a great movie. It is as good as Elite Squad: The Enemy Within (Tropa de Elite 2: o inimigo agora é outro). Thanks! Obrigado!
