The other half of Rio celebrates the turn of the millennium
5 February 2001 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This wonderful and insightful documentary focuses on the favela (slum) dwellers of Rio de Janeiro. And in particular all that takes place in the lives of a dozen very different characters from Babilonia, the hilltop slum with "Million Dollar Views." The inhabitants of Babilonia, by and large, are content to live in their own world high atop Copacabana. Fresh and candid interviews with these people, while following their activities during 18 hours between 11 AM New Year's Eve and the wee hours of New Year's Day 2000, are the essence of this fresh eye opener. A must.
