“The Storyline that is listed just about Explains the Story. About a man from a Sao Paulo neighborhood, notorious for itu0026#39;s Bars, Nightclubs, and Local crime figures.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStory starts in early 50u0026#39;s and continues to the mid 60u0026#39;s; Hiroito, the man in this story is shown growing up, and how he eventually gets involved in a Life of Crime.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFrom 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.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI canu0026#39;t believe No one has bothered to Review this so far. The Movie, to me, was a good u0026#39;crime storyu0026#39;; he was known locally, and made quite a name for himself (criminally speaking).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI kind of hope that Hirohito will eventually Post here, and give his impression IF the Film was true to his book.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSince I knew absolutely nothing about the MOVIE, except the Storyline, I nevertheless took a chance and spent an hour or so and watched.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNot sure if the Actors in this film are known or unknown, but they were all convincing to me, as far as portraying their Characters.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHate to give anything away (SPOILER)- but I wonder what Hiroito was thinking, when he saw the kid he Rescued, playing with other kids??”
