Recommended movie: Tropa de Élite

A very controversial Brazilian film following the very violent exploits of Rio de Janeiro military police special forces, it reminded me a lot of situations I’m familiar with as a fellow Latin American.

Apologies for embedding the Brazilian Portuguese trailer to those of you who might not understand the language, but the English one is ridiculous, corny, and gives you completely the wrong idea about the pace, style and atmosphere of the movie.

  1. I saw this movie in October 2009. It was amazing! Just like you say, sadly Latinamerican people (Mexicans), we know situations than movie shows. (¿Qué tal mi #badenglish? jeje) Saludos
