“An even sexier take on Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN…” - Sara Brady, Premiere Magazine

“A sweaty SEXY Brazilian noir from some of the same people who made CITY OF GOD” – Chris Anderson, Philadelphia Weekly

“Scintillatingly sexy! The actors seethe with sexual passion and rage. Cinematographer Toca Seabra's sweaty closeups and raw, hand-held camerawork charge the actors' bodies with sensuality. A strong calling card for first time helmer Sérgio Machado and an eye-catching showcase for the talented young cast.” - Deborah Young, Variety

Lower City Trailer

From the filmmakers who brought you CITY OF GOD and THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, comes this sexy Brazilian drama chronicling a love triangle between two best friends, Deco and Naldinho (CARANDIRU’s Lázaro Ramos and Wagner Moura), and a sultry, beautiful young girl, Karinna (Alice Braga, CITY OF GOD). Burdened with unbridled passion, the threesome navigates the “lower city” of tropical Salvador Bahia, stumbling through a treacherous landscape of sex and jealousy. Suffocated and unable to go on, the three must accept one another as lovers, adversaries and ultimately friends; learning to overlook the defiance of their actions and joining one another down an unthinkable path. A startlingly intimate debut from director Sérgio Machado, LOWER CITY bursts with a sensuality and energy emanating from the unflinching performances of the vibrant young cast.
