Storyline

Adapted from his autobiography, the film recounts the story of Hiroito, The King of Boca do Lixo (a region in downtown São Paulo of the fifties where various nightclubs, strip joints, prostitution, bars, and drugs can be found). Hiroito was a well born bohemian and at the age of 21 was accused for the murder of his father, who was violently stabbed over 40 times with a razor. Hiroito was not charged, however two months after the death of his father, Hiroito bought two guns and moved to Boca do Lixo and became one of the most dangerous criminals of the region.

A Good Crime Story
17 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Storyline that is listed just about Explains the Story. About a man from a Sao Paulo neighborhood, notorious for it's Bars, Nightclubs, and Local crime figures.

Story starts in early 50's and continues to the mid 60's; Hiroito, the man in this story is shown growing up, and how he eventually gets involved in a Life of Crime.

From what I read after I watched this film, Hiroito did some time in Prison, and went on to write a Book about his life. That Book is what the Movie is based on.

I can't believe No one has bothered to Review this so far. The Movie, to me, was a good 'crime story'; he was known locally, and made quite a name for himself (criminally speaking).

I kind of hope that Hirohito will eventually Post here, and give his impression IF the Film was true to his book.

Since I knew absolutely nothing about the MOVIE, except the Storyline, I nevertheless took a chance and spent an hour or so and watched.

Not sure if the Actors in this film are known or unknown, but they were all convincing to me, as far as portraying their Characters.

Hate to give anything away (SPOILER)- but I wonder what Hiroito was thinking, when he saw the kid he Rescued, playing with other kids??
