I am a big fan of foreign film, because its great to see directors with different points of view than the average ...
The shot where we see a lot of dead bodies lying on huge blocks of concrete was recreated from an award-winning photograph taken during the drug war portrayed in the movie.
Whoa, the chicken ran away. Get that chicken, dude!
When Knockout Ned is yelling over the dead boy, the body is breathing.
During the end credits there is shown actual real-life footage of the real Mané Galinha, or Knockout-Ned as he is translated into in the American version of the film. This is in fact the same TV interview we see constructed in the film, and we can see that the filmmakers have copied this TV interview down to the smallest detail.
