Locandina del film brasiliano del 2002 diretto da Fernando Meirelles e Katia Lund, presentato fuori concorso al 55º Festival di Cannes Città di Dio è una favelas una delle molte di Rio de Janeiro e leggere questo libro è come entrare in un altro mondo: in certi momenti mi sembrava di leggere un romanzo distopico, uno di quelli in cui le regole della convivenza come la conosciamo noi non esistono più e tutti possono commettere i più efferati delitti senza che questo crei grossi problemi di coscienza o abbia conseguenze di alcun tipo sugli assassini.

The journalists want Rocket to take more pictures. A city where God has apparently deserted his illusory throne and vanished without a trace. History completes itself in divine law.
