Roteiro fraco, sendo melhor o documentÃ¡rio. Ã"nibus 174 de JosÃ (C) Padilha.
When Marisa is unable to pay a debt, her baby, Alessandro, is taken away from her by a drug dealer. After she changed her life and become a Jesus follower, she becomes determined to find her child. On the outskirts of Rio, another boy, Sandro, finds his mother stabbed to death in her shop. He runs away, intent on reaching Copacabana, where his mother once promised to take him. Once there, Sandro befriends some street kids who sweep him up into a world of drug use and dealing. After becoming a hardened survivor of the Candelaria massacre (an attempt by Rio police to clean up the city by murdering street kids as they slept), he eventually finds himself in a juvenile detention home. It is there that he meets Marisa's long-lost boy, Alessandro. Marisa meanwhile finds her way to the center, and mistakes Sandro for her own son. Despite her efforts to help him, Sandro cannot escape his hard reality, and ultimately becomes the hostage-taker on Bus 174. This all story took place in south of Rio Janeiro, Brazil, and show us the sequence of events that took place in the Sandro's life, a poor boy that hijacks Bus 174 and takes few hostages on June 12, 2000. Another horrible but true portrait of living in a country well known by its social differences. Sandro was just another "invisible" boy taken by the poverty, the drugs, fear and violence that surround him and gives to him no opportunity and no choice but being a thief. I enjoy watch this movie, direction and actors did a good work. You don't expect a movie about the hijack but a movie about the depressive but true Brazilian reality. Simply good direction and good actors I recommend find the one with English sub titles, the dialogue is in Portuguese, awesome, real awesome.
