It is a different kind of living, a life that sambas with the vibrance of the swaying palm and the bounding drum.A life that understands that we are only on this earth for a cup of cafezinho, and we should have fun while we can before the end comes, but quick.On the surface, in this context, City of God is a coming of age story of two young people, a sort of Brazilian "Angels With Dirty Faces.' One character escapes from the City of God, while the other succumbs to it.

But such a narrow view does not take into account the fact that while we in America work to live, sweating away for pennies which the government steals at every turn, they in Brazil Live to Live.The film is built like a video game in its use of random acts of violence.But the fluid perfect camera work and editing give way to a film with enormous contradictions.But Director Fernando Meirelles takes a situation lacking definite boundaries and clear authority, and creates a framework, a structure, that of Gang Rule.The gang-members are not seasoned, old-time criminals like Fredo Corleone or even Tony Montana. No one is older than 25, partly because of choice, but mainly because no one lives past this age.
