Tio Anco:Do you carry weapons, Clodoaldo?
Clodoaldo:To be honest, I can't really say yes and I can't really say no. But I'll show you our best weapon, which is this: a cell-phone. Me and the boys have all the contacts we need.
João:So, worst-case scenario, you throw the mobile at the bad guy, is that it?
Clodoaldo:Mr. João, please...
João:Then you run home and get the real thing. I'm just trying to understand.
Clodoaldo:I get it, I get it.

A daring debut, 25 March 2013

In his daring debut, Kleber Mendonça Filho did not just made a film about Brazilian middle class suburbia but placed the audience right on that street.

We take part on the daily lives of the residents, their aspirations and challenges as their characters are opened wide for us to study, judge and ponder upon.

These seemingly ordinary lives that these people lead, experience some sort of change when a street security team is hired to protect them and whilst watching this the question regarding where this is going did pop into my head, it is an area where the new director showed some mastery by not allowing the putting together of the pieces of the puzzle to affect the narrative as we were led to its dramatic conclusion.

An unusual but stimulating experience.
