Anyone ever experience this film by Hector Babenco starring the late Fernando Ramos da Silva?

I just found it very brave, like "The 400 Blows" but with more empathy. Very much influenced the Italian Neo Realism movement.

Brilliant film! Cinematography by Rodolfo Sanchez is in a very documentary style.
Very much influenced BY the Italian neorealist film movement.

'Haven't seen this film for years - you've reminded me of it again... I remember being really moved by it...

Especially moving when I learned the eleven year old boy who starred in the movie (Fernando Ramos da Silva) died 6 years later on the streets of Brazil. Apparently as a result of being shot by the police.

Life imitating art.
