Rating: 10/10

I was very exciting waiting for the next Stephen Daldry's movie and, fortunately, my expectations was accomplish. The movie is wonderful! I already saw it three times!

the story of three boys who live in the garbage, based on the excellent book by Andy Mulligan, is an unparalleled purity, able to thrill all people around the world. Brazilian actors Wagner Moura, Selton Mello, Andre Ramiro, ze Dumont, Xavier Nelson are excellent! The young actors who play the main characters, and who had never acted before in his life, are more sensational find of Mr. Daldry!

The movie has it all ... action, suspense, comedy bits and a lot of sensitivity. Something that Daldry is a master at putting in his films.

Do not forget to see and review TRASH! A roller coaster of emotions!
