Director Fernando Meirelles made one of the strongest directorial debuts of the last twenty years with his film City of God and followed this up with the equally well received The Constant Gardener in 2005.

Hopes were high for his next film as he was collaborating with screenwriter Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon) on a truly international stage.
360 is loosely based on a play by Arthur Schnitzler written in 1897 called La Ronde.

The play has been loosely adapted into film thirteen times over the last sixty years and 360 is the latest version. »
