City of men? Yes please.,
This review is from: City Of Men (TV Series) [DVD]  (DVD)
With 'City of God' being one of my favourite films, it thought it was only right that i gave this dvd a chance.
I was luckily enough to catch a couple of episodes on BBC4, but never really got the full experience.
City of men, as you know by now, is a spin off of the film City of God. Like the film, it keeps its cinematography and style at a constant excellent level.
Most people will notice a lot of Actors from City of God being used again in different roles, and i had a lot of fun seeing who i could spot.
In this dvd you get the two series of City of men, the first being set around 'Arecola' (City of God's Lil'Dice) and 'Laranjinha'(City of God's steak and chips) younger years, the second series set around their teens.
The contrast is brilliant, as the the first season our boys are young and naive, but have the streets smarts they need. The second series, the boys are older and have intrests in girls and become ignorant to laws of the Favalas.
For me the best series is the first, but the second comes close. Either way this dvd is recommended for anyone who loved City of God.
