Recommend this film

Fourteen-year-old Nego and fifteen-year-old Cocada meet every day at a petrol station near their favela in a poor quarter of the Brazilian megacity Sao Paulo, where they try to make a little money to support themselves and their families. Cocada dreams of becoming a truck driver while he washes the windows of cars, grazes pigs at a waste dump or makes bricks. Nego lives from hand to mouth with his mother and nine siblings, which is why he helps them eke out a living. That however, doesn't leave him much time for school. Though they are old before their time, the two boys still believe that they will be able to fulfil their dreams. One boy's dream is a driving licence and the cab of a truck while the other wants his own house made from corn husks. The two directors of this film gently introduce us to the world of both boys, whose everyday lives we seem to observe without being seen. The captivating camerawork and narration reminiscent of a feature film have helped this picture make its mark at several film festivals.
