Pixote :a lei do mais fraco

This classic film by Hector Babenco (The Kiss of the Spider Woman), tells the story of the 10-year-old street kid Pixote who ?s send to a juvenile reformatory after one of many raids. Along with the queer character Lilica and his mates - played by Brazilian street boys - they decide to escape from the humiliation, corruption and sexual abuse. They spend their days in the harsh reality of the street : will their deal with a prostitute rescue them ? A classic film to rediscover, close to the neo-realistic tradition like early Pasolini ?s and the theatricality of Fassbinder ?s.
