In the slums of Rio, two kids' paths diverge as one struggles to become a photographer and the other a kingpin.
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.
The closing credits shows pictures of the main actors, their name, their character's name and pictures of the real life characters (for the ones based on existing people).
The UK DVD displays the decade titles in English rather than Portuguese.
