Synopsis

“Focused on two friends, ‘CITY OF MEN’ feels real, like a Brazilian ‘Wonder Years.’ With some guns. – Los Angeles Times

"CITY OF MEN" pulses with the kind of energy you don't get often on American television, and the realness of the shot-on-location scene really makes each episode feel like a minimovie.” - The San Francisco Chronicle

City of Men: Episode 2 - Preview


From the team behind the Academy Award®-nominated feature CITY OF GOD, including directors Fernando Meirelles (THE CONSTANT GARDNER) and Kátia Lund comes the hit Brazilian television series CITY OF MEN on DVD. Set in the present day, the series mixes comedy and drama as it follows the struggles, schemes, and dreams of Acerelo (Douglas Silva, CITY OF GOD) and Laranjinha (Darlan Cunha, CITY OF GOD), thirtheen year-old best friends trying to lead normal lives in an impoverished favela.

As any ordinary kids their age, Acerola and Laranjinha like to play video games and shop for the latest trends, however, residing in a city full of gangs, drugs and extreme violence, the boys are forced to grow up faster than other boys their age. Shot on location, CITY OF MEN brilliantly mixes humor and reality to explore life in the “favelas” and the indomitable spirit of two best friends coming up in one of the most volatile communities in the world.

3-disc box set includes all 19 episodes from all 4 seasons.
