5From the producers of the violent and trigger-happy Cidade de Deus comes Cidade dos Homens, a Brazilian TV series on the lives of two young men caught up in a world of extreme violence. Its tagline doesn’t nearly come close to what the series is all about: “An unforgettable tale of friendship and survival in a city where the greatest challenge is growing up.” Too sweet a sentence to describe mayhem, if you ask me. Gritty and unflinchingly irreverent with gun fights, the series rattles off bullets like there’s no tomorrow, but the initial shock dissipates with the series’ revelation of the characters’ apparent humanness.
