    I watched this film yesterday, I thought it was really good.

    You follow a group of kids just starting out in the slum gangs in Rio and then watch them growing up into into full on gangsters.

    Lots of drugs and lots of violence, quality film

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0317248/ - they agree

    I just checked out the trivia they had about it on the imdb site. Is actually based on a true story and most of the actors where actually kids from the gangs
