Many Years Before "City of God"…

Jorginho, his white friend Rico, Lici and Paulinho are homeless best friends living in a slum in a hill in Copacabana. They spend their hopeless life playing with kite; trying to survive getting food from the street market or the fishermen; learning how to pickpocket; working on the streets polishing shoes. Rico escaped from an institution in Caxambu that symbolizes hell on Earth for them. When he gets ill, he decides to return to the place because he does not want to die on the streets.

"Mitt hem är Copacabana" looks like, but it is not a documentary as indicated in IMDb. The Swedish director Arne Sucksdorff came to Brazil in 1962, and he introduced new equipment and gave a cinema course in 1962 for the first generation of the Brazilian "Cinema Novo" filmmakers. He brilliantly shot this movie based on the screenplay of the Brazilian writers John Bethencourt and Flávio Migliaccio. The performances of the children are simply amazing. The cinematography is fantastic. The direction is awesome. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Fábula" ("Fable")
