Product Description

The main character in City of God is not a person, but a place. Cidade de Deus (City of God) is a poor Brazilian housing project born in the 1960s when organized crime and drugs gained a foothold in the area. Becoming the most dangerous place in Rio de Janeiro, the power lay not in the hands of the government but in the hands of the teenage drug barons. D'Antonio Pinto and Ed Cortes' timeless score enhances this gritty portrayal of poverty, violence, and urban decay. Consisting of classic Brazilian funk, jazz, and pop music the soundtrack includes songs by the Brazilian legends Hyldon, Tim Maia, Raul Seixas, Cartola and Simonal. The City of God soundtrack has been compared to Pulp Fiction, with its brilliant use of carefully chosen music that serves as an integral part of the script. Featuring the international club hit "Kung Fu Fighting" performed by Bus Stop and the song's creator, Carl Douglas, City of God adds heartfelt emotion and cultural influence to this brutally honest story of love, loss, survival, and fulfilling dreams.

In telling the story of two friends from a tough Rio de Janeiro barrio whose lives can never seem to escape the favela where they were born and raised, the acclaimed film by Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund has drawn comparisons to such modern touchstones as Martin Scorsese's GoodFellas. Taking his inspiration from the filmmakers' daring gambit to cast real people in the roles and the film's '60s-'70s milieu, composer Antonio Pinto (assisted by partner Ed Córtes) has concocted a smart, rhythmically intoxicating cocktail of Brazilian jazz and samba, shaken with a little '70s American funk and R&B and served with cool, tropical flair. Those various styles often melt into each other with a liberating sense of postmodern possibility, giving listeners an experience that's as exotic as it is deceptively familiar, the worthy equatorial flip side of David Holmes's jazz-funk collaborations with Steven Soderbergh on Out of Sight and Ocean's Eleven. --Jerry McCulley
