Trivia

Vinicius de Oliveira, a shoeshine boy, beat out more than 1,500 other young actors for the role of Josué.

When Fernanda Montenegro set up her table at Central Station, real people approached her to write letters for them. Some of these real talks were incorporated by director Walter Salles and appear in the movie.
