Man of the Year The 2003
Before you're born...
someone, maybe God, defines exactly|how he's going to fuck your life.
This was my theory.
God only thinks about|men at the start...
when He decides whether their|life is going to be good or bad.
If He's in a hurry,|He makes a war, or a tornado...
and kills off a whole bunch|of people without a thought.
But He did think about me.
'THE MAN OF THE YEAR'
So, have you chosen?
- This one.|- Nowadays men are like women.
Liposuction, waxing, getting rid of|wrinkles, peeling, botox, everything.
For instance, now it 's trendy|for men to dye their hair blond.
- Yesterday, I did two myself.|- In my case it was a bet.
I don't like my clients looking.|Spoils the surprise.
- What bet was that?|- Soccer.
Losing is terrible. Who lost?
Oh, my God.
I shouldn't have left|it so long, but...
I think you'll like it.|Hope so.
It's nearly platinum blonde.
What's wrong, didn't you like it?|I can dye it again, if you want.
I've always thought I was ugly.|Never enjoyed looking in the mirror.
But on that day it was different.
I looked at that face that was mine|but wasn't mine. A blond...
I spent my whole life wishing|lwere someone else.
And there I felt my time had come.
What are you doing tonight?
So, what are we going to do?
I wanted to take Cledir to a motel|and fuck all night long.
But I' d promise to pass|by Gonzaga's bar...
and show my cousin Robinson|that I' d paid my debt.
I could've gone there another time,|but I felt like going right then.
I was feeling good...
and wanted to show everyone|the new Máiquel.
- What the fuck's that?|- What's up? What am I, a clown?
You look funny.
- In what way, brother?|- What do you mean? Just funny.
You look like a gringo.
You telling me I look like a fag?
You walk in here looking like a|gringo and I can't think it's funny?
What's your problem?
I'not a faggot and I'm not a clown.
I don't like you laughing|when I walk in here.
That 's the problem.
I didn't call you a fag...
but I am now.|If you ask me...
any man who dyes his hair blond|like that, like you did...
has to be a fag, and big time.
C'mon. Weren't we going to dance?
Máiquel, come and have|a beer with us, man.
Go fuck yourself.
Don't mess around with that guy.|Forget it.
You're the faggot, Suel. Let's go|outside settle this shit like men.
Come on, let's go!
- I'm so scared of you.|- Let 's go!
Hey c'mon! Stop that now!
No fighting in my bar!
I'm with my girlfriend tonight.|I'll deal with you another time.
Whenever you like, Blondie.
- Let 's go.|- Tomorrow. Midday, here.
I couldn't sleep at night|thinking about Suel.
And my tooth was killing me.
I shouldn't have done that.|I had gotten myself in a duel.
Suel surely had a gun. I had never|held a gun before, damn it.
I was going to stay home quiet,|and forget that guy.
Fuck him.|I wasn't gonna go out.
Reach for your gun, Suel.
Fire away, Blondie.
That's how things began.|In this stupid way.
I never thought I' d kill someone.
And all because of a bet.
DAY OF SADNESS AND GLORY|AT MARACANÃ
I wanted to run away,|to leave town but I just stood...
I was afraid of Suel' s friends,|afraid of the cops, of going to jail.
I just wanted to put|an end to that agony.
I was going to hand myself in.
- Hand yourself in, like hell!|- Like hell!
I told you not to mess with Suel!
- You've got to get away fast.|- Take that car you've been using...
...and go to the countryside.|- No, the Maverick's due tomorrow!
You should go further,|up to the northeast.
Fuck, Marcão!|People hide over in Niterói.
Why don't you dye your hair|black and stay right here?
After having dropped|at the end of last week...
today the dollar increased|by 5.31%% against the real...
and was bought at R$ 3.165|and sold at R$ 3.17.
The volume of transactions|among banks decreased.
Suel was a fucking thief.|He took boxes of booze...
and said that if I told the cops|he'd set fire to the bar.
No one liked him around here.
Plus the fucker was under age|and couldn't be arrested.
He deserved to die.
Go on, drink your whisky.
I'll just have a Coke, no ice.
He's the one who shot Suel.
Good work. Helping keep the|trash off the streets. Let's go.
I felt it was still too early|for me to feel safe.
But everybody was thanking me,|giving me presents.
I never thought that people would|be happy with the death of a guy.
They said that criminals belong|in the cemetery...
and that I had done|society some good.
Who farted there, man?
- Stinks!|- Gross, man!
That stinks! Fuck!
Just a minute.
So tell us how you|knocked that guy out.
The guy came at me like this, right?|Showing off...
Had a girlfriend, didn't he?
- Wonder where she's gone.|- She can go fuck herself.
Go on, Enoque, spit it out!
- It was nobody.|- What do you mean, nobody?
Mr. Baldani sent this.|Told me to congratulate you.
Bill Clinton's visit to Brazil...
was marked by a breach of protocol.
At the Mangueira Olympic village...
the American retinue|was half an hour late.
They were applauded|by the elite of Rio's samba.
The VIPs of Mangueira Samba School|heard two celeb's speeches.
Pelé succeeded in making|Bill Clinton...
the first US president|to join Mangueira.
I can do that too.|I'll make you a deal:
Don't eat my sneakers|and I won't eat you.
Your name's Bil now. Okay?
What's up? What's up?
Who's Bil? Who's Bil?
Who's Bil? Who's Bil...
Bil, daddy's going out now|to buy food for you.
Food for Bil.
After I killed Suel a lot of things|changed in my life.
That was all the neighborhood talked|about. They were proud of me.
I always thought life sucked,|I always did everything wrong...
but now it was different.
I started to enjoy things.|I felt important, happy.
I was going to get a job,|work, and date.
In Japan there are many|ways to prepare fish...
but only a way to cut it.|Ginsu 20OO for the legend lives on.
Sharper than ever,|its carbon steel blade...
cuts bones like this.
A genuine Ginsu can cut,|carve, chop, saw and slice.
Its extremely sharp saw-toothed|edge can easily carve...
this turkey and this shank.|Ginsu cuts any kind of vegetable.
Look. How much would you pay|for this Ginsu 20OO?
Don't answer yet because you'll also|receive 6 other knives for barbecue.
Their double saw-toothed blades|can carve any kind of meat.
That's not all.|You'll also get this cutter...
for delicate cuts of meat that|won't require further sharpening.
Listen to me!|You're not doing your part!
Folks are talking about you.
Jesus, what happened|to your sneaker?
- Oh, that was Bil.|- The dog?
- No, the pig.|- Pig? You've got a pig now?
- Cool, where is it?|- It's in the bathroom.
A piglet... to eat.
What do you think I'd have|a pig in the house for?
Oh, don't eat it.|Pigs are so cute.
What is it?
- Feel better?|- Sure.
- Do you like pork?|- Sure, nice piece of loin.
You know, I prefer you like this,|blond. Suits you.
You'll have to go back|and redo the roots.
I think you'd better go|and find a dentist.
I hate Rio.
Violence is turning|this city into a jungle.
Crime is running rings|around this place, son.
I'm in favor of the death penalty.
All that talk about|human rights is a laugh.
They're not humans,|kidnappers, rapists.
If you ask me,|one's born with criminal impulses.
Dr. Carvalho was a strange man,|but I liked him.
He told me some funny things.
But I was ashamed to open my mouth,|my teeth all fucked up.
Your teeth are decayed, son,|all of them.
How much to pull out|the one that 's hurting?
I can treat your teeth.|You're too young for dentures.
I don't think I've got enough|to pay for treatment.
You're the one who|killed Suel, aren't you?
You don't need to pay, son.
I like you. That is,|I like what you did to Suel.
That mulatto had it coming to him.
I hate blacks. I hate mulattos.|I'm one helluva racist.
Only the hypocrites have no courage|to admit it. I'll tell you something:
You've got a problem.|I'm a dentist and I've got a problem.
We can help each other.
You do me a favor|and I'll do you a favor.
How about it?
This is my daughter.
She's 17, just a kid.
She was raped.
I never told the police.
You know, the humiliation.
Máiquel, I want you to kill|the bastard who hurt my girl.
I've nowhere to stay.|I'll come live at your place.
Suel looked after me...
now you'll have to.
It's no use throwing me out.|I won't go.
How old are you?
If you won't let me in, I'll stay|right here outside your door.
And every time you go out,|I'll sneak in.
Suel's mother threw me out.|I've got nowhere to go.
You'll have to keep me now.
Give me a place to stay,|food, clothes...
everything I need.
To get rid of me you'll have|to kill me, like you did Suel.
I'm not leaving, period.
Gee, I've already|got one pig in there.
It's nice here.
You can stay here|till we find someplace else.
You can sleep on the bed.|I'll take the sofa.
I don't know about|a criminaI's soul...
but an honest man's soul|is a living hell.
Just take a look around.
Walls with broken glass, iron barbs,|barbed wire, bulletproof cars...
bulletproof windows... All we ever|think about is defending ourselves.
No one respects|traffic lights anymore.
No one goes out at night.
No one opens their window at night.
We're all scared stiff.
Well, I fulfilled my promise.|Have you brought me any news?
I know where he works,|at a pet store.
He lives with his mother.|She's really sick...
but he takes good care of her.
Everyone's got a mother, son.|Even Emperor Nero had a mother.
Just look at your new smile.
Smile, son, show your teeth, laugh.
I'm the one who can no longer smile.
This pain consuming me,|my poor baby girl.
I need money to buy a new gun.
- Why did you kill Suel?|- Get out!
- I'm not looking.|- Get out and close the door!
Why did you kill Suel?|He didn't do anything to you.
You can stay at my place,|eat my food...
wear my clothes, ask for money,|play with my pig...
sleep in my bed, just don't|annoy me with that question!
- Who are you looking for?|- Caju.
This is an AR-15, been very popular|here in Rio for a long time...
good for pumping lead.|The ammo's a bitch to find, though.
handles easy.|I like this babe a lot.
12 Pump pistol.
No, I want something lighter,|I don't know, a revolver.
- A 38.|- I know what you want.
You want something light...
to carry hidden in your belt,|to command a little respect.
Take a 45, semi-automatic.
Knocks them right out. And the|ammo's readily available. Here.
Feel that power.
Feels like you're wearing|a crown, right?
You're Máiquel, aren't you?
What's up, man?
In those days,|I hadn't yet learned to hate.
People said Ezequiel was evil...
but all I could see|was this poor bastard.
Weren't you gonna introduce me your|friend who's staying at your place?
She's an acquaintance.|I'm going to take a shower.
Wait, I've got something|important to tell you.
- What's that on your shirt?|- Nothing.
I cut myself.
He's angry at me. But I already|told him I'm not leaving.
Promise she's leaving?
Haven't you noticed anything|different? Take a good look.
I've put over 6 pounds,|can't you tell?
We can marry in March,|the baby'll be born in November.
So I can take my vacation from work.|You know the priest I told you about?
I love Father Oscar. At the church|Our Lady of Conception...
they do weddings with 15, 2O couples.|It's the loveliest thing in the world.
Or maybe we should just|get married by ourselves.
Or everyone will be comparing|dresses. Come on, say something!
I thought we could go|and live with my mom.
I don't really like this place.|We can do up that room at the back.
But tell me...
don't I look pregnant?
- A church wedding?|- Yeah.
With a wedding dress,|veil, garland, the works?
How am I meant to know?
Are you mad at me or at|yourself about getting married?
I want to marry.
I like Cledir.|I asked her to marry me.
Tomorrow I'm going to her place|to make the arrangements.
I want to change,|want to be a normal man...
have a family, kids,|go to church on Sundays...
Don't be ridiculous, Máiquel!
And where would you get the money|to take care of us? You have no job.
You know we're|an unauthorized dealer.
You want in?|Fine, but that 's the deal.
No, Marcão, that 's not my scene now.|I need a proper job.
I'm getting married.|Going to have a kid.
Why get married right now?|Go and tell her:
Look, I've no job, no money.
Make a deal with her. You don't know|what 's like to have a son. Tell her:
- Let 's get rid of the baby together.|- I want to get married, work.
If you ask me,|only dumb women get pregnant.
And they should pay the price on|their own. Let her bring up the brat.
Maybe it 's not even yours.|Bitches fuck around...
Not bitch, man!
Cledir, there's something|I want to talk about.
- Look how it 's growing, so big now.|- It sure has grown.
Mom's coming, she's getting dressed.
Let 's just talk about the wedding,|no need to mention I'm pregnant, OK?
Your hands are freezing.|Are you nervous?
Cledir, I've been thinking...
I've be thinking, and|I think it 's for the best...
Ready! I'm coming!
Ah, Máiquel, I'm so pleased|to receive you in my home!
Sit down, son.|Now I can call you son, right?
We must register this occasion!
It's so nice to see you together.|Praise the Lord!
MáiqueI's Coke!|I'll just fetch it.
- No ice, mom. He likes it without it.|- You told me so many times, I forgot.
I wanted to tell you...
See how happy she is?|She loves you.
I've got to tell you|something, Cledir.
I know this is a special|occasion for you...
I think the time's not right yet...
I'm going to recite a poem!|Quiet!
Life is an open air tunnel.
Love...|Oh, I'm no good at poetry.
When I think of Cledir I imagine|a world of four letters: Love.
What about the honeymoon?
We're going to Araruama.|Anyone been there?
Humberto! This is Marcão,|and that 's my cousin Robinson.
- So you need a job?|- Yes.
The guy who used to work with me|disappeared. Completely.
Do you like animals?
- Sure. Animals?|- Then the job's yours.
Máiquel, come and cut the cake!
Cledir was so beautiful that day.
And I realized I wanted|to be a normal man.
A working man, married...
That's what I wanted, to be a|regular guy like everybody else.
I was going to work at the pet shop.|Everything would be fine.
Lots of shit, right?
Only thing these animals know|what to do is shit.
Might as well get used to it, you'll|have to clean up plenty of baby shit.
That 's what marriage is:|Baby shit.
And baby shit is like quicksand:
Take one step and the shit|won't let go of you.
- Not all marriages are the same.|- They are. Only the shit changes.
There's porous shit, runny shit...
Women are only cute|until their wedding day.
After that, they turn into fat,|vindictive cows.
They never forgive you for|having married them!
Do you have any dog biscuits?
- What brand?|- Any.
The most expensive.
So this is where|you're working, son?
Do you earn enough|to keep your family?
You did a good, clean job, kid.
Brilliant future ahead of you.
Dr. Carvalho, could we talk outside?
You went off before|I could fully show...
all my gratitude, son.
Not many people|you can rely on these days.
What's wrong? Regrets?|Regret becoming a hero?
Of having rid|society of a monster?
Here, this is for you.
See you around.
- That guy is a friend of yours?|- He's my dentist.
What a jerk.
See, Zilmar? From here I can see|all the entrances to the house.
A monitor for each camera.|I know who enters, who leaves.
It's great.|Sometimes I sit here with my whisky.
See, Sílvio? I drink|my whisky and sit waiting...
for the day when someone comes.
Hang on, Carvalho. You really|think that shit might work?
Soares had bulletproof car,|bulletproof door...
and look what happened to him.|He got royally fucked.
Like I said, a guy puts a gun|to your head and what happens?
You shit yourself. Then you open|the door, the safe, the works.
If a criminal wants to get into|your house, he will do it.
And he'll take your car,|your dollars, your gold, the works!
Only one way to deal with it.
Look, there's our guest now.
We've got to be realistic.|The cops are incompetent, corrupt.
- Can't expect a damn thing from them.|- Sure, Carvalho!
You think I'm expecting something|from the cops? Me?
Remember that crazed|nigger in that bus?
The entire police force|against a street kid?
Remember what the kid shouted?
I'm the devil's son!
Honey, your father is talking|business with his friends.
Go back to your room.
Go ahead, Sílvio, speak to the man!
Máiquel, Carvalho told me about|how you've been helpful...
about your credentials in the|community, how reliable you are...
that you're ready for anything. Just|this month I've been mugged twice.
By a guy called Neno.|The guy is making...
my family's life hell,|and my businesses too.
The police don't lift a finger|'cause they're scared of the press...
who are afraid of the NGOs. Fucking|priests talk about human rights...
protecting 14,|15 year-old pickpockets.
We must defend ourselves.
I want you to kill this criminal for me.
- Kill him?|- Sure, kill him.
How much do you want to get rid|of this guy? His name is Neno.
Go on, son, ask away. Sílvio will|give you as much as you like.
I came for Bil. I convinced Cledir|to let him stay there.
- Got an old blanket?|- What for?
For the pig?!
Like pigs feel the cold, Máiquel!|Really!
How do you know pigs|don't feel the cold?
How do you know pigs|don't feel the cold?
For Heaven's sake!
Women are only interested in us|to get married and have kids.
Then they spend the rest of their|life getting on our nerves.
Getting fatter and fatter.
I don't know what's worse,|the ones who put on weight...
or those who work out|and stay too thin.
I've got this theory:
Women work out to stay|sexy for their lovers.
If you ever find your wife|working out in the gym...
beat the shit out of her because|she must be cheating on you.
Today's your birthday.
Pick a dog as a present.
I'll take this one.
His name is Pickpocket.|I've given them all names.
Pickpocket steals|everyone else's food.
But I think it 's better if I take|him later. Bil might not like him.
- Shall we serve dinner? I'm starving.|- Did you turn off the stove?
Máiquel, they're not coming.|The baby's hungry, honey.
Come on, right when|things are livening up?
We're going to...
My name is Robinson.|This here is my friend Enoque.
Aunt Rosa, you can serve now!|Let's sit down, everyone. Let's eat.
It's ready.|Been in the oven for 4 hours.
- It must be delicious.|- What's this, Cledir?
We have a birthday party to go to.
You must be looking|for someone else.
How could you do this to me, Cledir?
I was gonna save him for Christmas,|but, well, it's your birthday.
- You killed Bil!|- He messed up the house!
Only the backyard|and I always cleaned it up!
I know who you are, Robinson.|I'm looking for your friend.
But you'll do.
I'll never forgive you for this!|I'll never forgive you for this!
I meant no harm.|I was only trying to please you.
We were coming here,|Neno and the black guy...
Pereba. Robinson knew|right away, man. He said:
'Easy, Enoque, it's a setup.'|He was right. He said:
'We're just going to a party.'|Deaf ears.
The guy went round the car and said:|'You've had it, I'm loaded.' Bang!
Two shots.|They took out Robinson!
Point blank, right beside me, man.|They sent you a message, Máiquel.
Tell that peroxide fag|not to mess with Neno.
Or I'll blow his brains out, too.
Enoque, give me some of that shit.
This stuff isn't doing|anything for me.
Enoque! Give me that shit.|C'mon. Another.
This shit is useless.
I'm going out.|Bastard sons of bitches!
Enoque, give me another.|Another one.
Izilda, where did|you put the cigarettes?
You lost, bro. All right?
- Easy.|- Remember me, you son of a bitch?
He can't see you.
- Here, look!|- What the fuck, man?
Shit, you killed her, Enoque!
- Sorry, I didn't mean to.|- Fuck.
Sílvio had asked me to kill Neno.|I refused.
That'd been my mistake.|I had to kill that guy.
Either kill, or be killed.
It was better to kill.
Every morning I'd give him a banana.
Bil was very intelligent.
How do they kill pigs?
I don't know.
I hope Bil didn't suffer.
I'm sad about Robinson, too.
But Bil kept us company, didn't he?
No one's gonna kill you.
I won't let them.
- Where have you been all night?|- I told you.
I waited up all night for you!|You could've phoned!
You didn't come home because of that|pig. Bil was a pig. Like chicken...
...they're there to be eaten.|- Give me a break, Cledir!
Don't talk to me like that. I roasted|the pig because it was your birthday.
I didn't know you liked it that much.
I do everything for you,|and you treat me like a dog.
- Then he treats you fine!|- If you don't mind!
I've got a meeting, Humberto.|Give me some time, Cledir!
Time? You've got time to go off|with those sluts! Máiquel?!
Kamikaze. Kami means 'wind'|and kaze means 'divine'.
Divine wind. The hurricane that|destroyed the Mongol fleet...
which was going to invade Japan|got that name, Kamikaze.
The divine wind saved Japan|from the Mongols.
On war against the Americans,|the Japanese suicides...
I saw that movie.
Kamikazes and Japanese got screwed|and Americans won the war.
Máiquel, stop giving|the kid those almanacs.
And now she wants to learn English.
'How do you do?|How do you do?
Where is the book?
The book is on the table.'
What are you learning English for?|You hardly speak Portuguese.
So I don't speak Portuguese?|Ask me something.
Ask what?|I don't know it myself.
Whatever, ask me the|synonym of any word.
'Symonym?'|What the fuck's that?
I'll tell you. For example:|'Dumb'. Synonym, 'Marcão'.
He's leaving tomorrow.
- Erica, go and have a Coke, go on.|- What are you talking about?
- Why can't I hear?|- Kamikaze stuff.
- Go.|- Shit.
It'll have to be tonight|at the funk rave.
Funk rave?|Shit, I hate funk raves.
Look at the size|of that guy's arm, man!
He couldn't lift a finger|for anyone, son of a bitch.
Spends all day at the gym,|working out, damn playboy.
Taking vitamins.|That 's something fags do.
He's a real gum fag.|Hey, are you a man?
Let me see, here.|Here, take a hit, go on.
Go on, there.
That 's it, you like|a nice snort, right?
Hey man, this stuff is taking effect...
I feel like taking a dump.
That 's right. I'll take a shit|and you can eat it!
Ever since I was kid I've wanted|to make someone eat my shit, see?
And you're the one|who's gonna eat my shit.
Galego, pull over.
Whose idea was it to bring|this guy along?
- Enoque couldn't make it.|- Not 'guy', friend. I've got a name.
Look here, Zé Galinha.
We didn't bring anyone along to eat|shit. You can't do that to someone.
If I want him to eat my shit,|he'll eat my shit, okay?
And a jerk like you|won't stop him eating my...
MAN SHOT TO DEATH IS FOUND
SHOOTING AND DEATH IN RAMOS
MORE VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE
Here's the son of a bitch!
Nice album, kid.|Congratulations.
Hygienic and patriotic.
That 's how you build|a decent nation.
Where's the bathroom?
End of the corridor, son,|on your left.
I was looking for the bathroom.
My father won't like this one bit.
In fact, he'll think|it was on purpose.
He needn't know, though, right?
In fact, he needn't find out|about what happened here.
I need to go back to the living room.|You know where the bathroom is?
I'm not sure|I'm going to let you go.
Don't do this to me.
Don't you want to fuck me?
I've got to get back.
It was 10 p.m.|My wife was away...
I was watching TV in the bedroom|when I heard a noise downstairs.
So I went down to see.|Found this black guy...
in the living room with a gun.|He was nervous...
I even said: 'You can take|anything you want. I'm alone.
Take all you want.'|So he told me to sit on the sofa.
I asked whether I could have a whisky|and he said he'd have one too.
I gave him one.|He sat down beside me...
told me his nickname was Pedrão,|that his wife was pregnant...
that he hated stealing|but he was fucked...
one of those bastards we've|seen a million times.
Get to the point, Zilmar, come on.
I'll be right there.
My daughter's just been born.
- Let's have a little whisky.|- Let's celebrate, that's wonderful.
I didn't die because I managed|to drag myself to the gate...
where a neighbor found me,|all fucked up, on the sidewalk.
So that 's your little job: Pedrão.
I didn't know, but Jesus|had scheduled a meeting with me.
I'm going to give myself up to him|body and soul, in church.
Keep your daughter and your wife.
- Yes?|- Is Erica in?
'Better the sadness of a smile|than the sadness.'
Erica, let's go.
Have you met Minister Marlênio?
- Pleasure. Marlênio.|- Pleasure.
- Let 's go.|- I'm reading the Bible with him.
Nothing is more important than the|words of Jesus. Jesus said:
'Now I've finally come upon you|for I'll send my wrath...'
I need to talk to you.
We can read the Bible tomorrow,|Erica, no problem.
I don't want anything to do with you.|I was 12 when I saw my father die...
and decided no one would|make me suffer again.
You killed Suel...
and that didn't throw me,|I didn't go to the cops.
I asked you to look after me,|and you did.
You married and I didn't kill myself.|You had a daughter...
started getting rich, going around|with big shots and leaving me alone.
That hurt, you leaving me alone.
But Marlênio taught me that|God is always near us.
And whoever has Jesus in his|heart doesn't need anyone else.
That stupid fucking preacher's|filling your head with bullshit.
I love you, Erica.
What do you want me to do?
Cut my arm off?|Cut my left leg off?
You want me to cut my cock off?|Do you?
No way you'd do it.|You do nothing for me.
I'll do anything you say,|anything at all.
I want Cledir to disappear|from our lives.
Welcome to the Lord's Realm.
The door might look narrow,|but Jesus's heart is very wide.
It's so wide and friendly that has|room for the saint and the sinner.
Inside of it there's room for me,|you, everybody.
Those away from Jesus|are the ones who should fear.
That 's because they walk|hand in hand with the devil.
And God sees all.
God knows all.
And punishes everyone most terribly|for crimes committed.
Think about it, brothers and sisters.
Let's be in peace with our Lord|and Savior Jesus Christ.
PEDRO DAMACENO|SHOT TO DEATH
Where have you been lately?|I never see you at home.
I'm working at the Church|of the Almighty Heart of Jesus.
I've come to return your key.
I'm moving there.
Where did you say you're living?
At the Church of the|Almighty Heart of Jesus.
Marlênio arranged it.|You know where it is.
- Who's Marlênio?|- What are you doing there?
That's none of your business.|Who's Marlênio?
- Right, that's none of your business.|- Who's this Marlênio?
I clean the church, wash, cook,|fill in and stamp the cards...
- What cards?|- The congregation's cards.
Let her live at the church,|do whatever she likes.
It's about time|she disappeared from our lives.
Why can't she stay here?|What has she done wrong?
Listen here, I'm not stupid!
Erica, I never want to see you again.|Get out of my man's life, you hear?
Scram! Go on!
Are you having an affair with her?
- You been fucking that kid?|- No, Cledir.
Yes! You've been fucking the kid!|How could you do this to me?!
Come back here, open the door!|Scumbag, open the door!
Scumbag, open the door!
Open this door!|Open this door, scumbag!
'Be ye therefore be wise|as serpents...
and harmless as doves.'
- Erica, I need to talk to you.|- Can't you see I'm busy?
Marlênio told me|I'm to become his assistant.
I don't want to meet your son.|Go away!
It's a girl. Samanta. You alone?|I need to talk to you.
God sees all, knows all...
and will punish us most|terribly for crimes committed.
My weary heart|I give to you, Jesus.
I give my life to God because|His son gave his for my sake.
Just look at her face.
Is she going to sleep|in our bed with us?
Are you Máiquel?
- Yeah.|- Inspector Santana, 45th Precinct.
- Going out?|- Yeah, got a few things to do.
Is this your car?
Only good thing about this car is...
its trunk.|Had one once.
Give me a ride?
Dr. Carvalho gave me your address.
I've been following your work.
I've got a...|In the trunk there's a...
The folks in the neighborhood are|all on your side and you know it.
The shopkeepers respect you.
I've a proposition to make.
Santana offered me partnership...
in a private security company.
The idea was straightforward:|Everyone needs security.
The small shopkeepers,|big businessmen...
factories, millionaires.|He'd set up a company...
with employees, accountant,|lawyer, the works.
Only my name can't appear. You|come in with your work and your...
team.|My name is right out, okay?
What's up, something bothering you?
My wife, Cledir.
She's disappeared from home.
What do you mean, disappeared?
This is your office.|Like it?
It's not very big,|but you don't need more...
than this right now.
The objective here is security|for the neighborhood.
That is, for the shops, for those|with money, right, son?
Sure. Santana told me...
Santana doesn't exist here. Eleonor|just looks after the front end.
One other thing.
You should wear a suit, a decent|shirt. Get some respect, son.
Our company takes care of...
provides services to over|3O companies. Here's...
a list.|Do call and check, if you like.
I've got my own setup here.|I work with specialized people...
first class pros.|I've got everything I need.
Sorry, but we don't need|that sort of service at Átila.
Thanks for your time.|Here's my phone.
If you need anything,|we're at your service.
Hit the deck, man, get down!
Get down, son of a bitch!
Get your face down,|or I'll blow your brains out.
C'mon, man. Don't shoot me.
I know I fucked up|but I won't anymore.
Do you know|Átila transportation company?
Sure, they're up on Gamboa.
Till you kill your first guy, you|think you have to learn how to kill.
Learning to kill|is like learning to die.
One day you die, and that's that.
If you're holding a gun, that's it,|you know all there is to know.
Suspicious about what?
Érica, Cledir's aunt can go to hell.|How could she be suspicious?
Get out!|Go and buy anything you like!
You think I would buy|a screen that size?
How many inches is it? You call|this a home theater, damn it?
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.|We're gathered here to listen...
to the words of our|Man of the Year...
elected by the neighborhood.
Mr. Máiquel Jorge!
I'm deeply moved by this honor.
It is the duty of all of us|to fight ceaselessly so that...
those who wish to live in peace|traders, workers...
neighbors, fathers,|mothers and families...
may enjoy a most necessary|tranquility and safety.
- If I ever did anything for you...|- Where were you?
...it was no more than my duty.
I shall not rest, I promise.|Thank you.
You know what 's in this bag?
I told you to throw|that out, Erica.
I can't.|I was going to the other day...
only I found this top, look.
You don't speak English.|You don't know what it means.
Hello? Hi, Galego.|Easy, man. Speak slowly.
- Érica!|- Just a minute.
- What's he doing in here?|- I invited him for a coffee.
Galego, I'll be right over.
I don't like that guy.|What's he doing in here?
Poor thing, Máiquel.|The church needs money.
Are you going to give him money?
You said you were earning a shitload|of money, for me to ask for anything.
Well, I want to give|money to the church.
I can't believe you can't handle|this on your own!
I manage this shit now! I don't work|the streets anymore. Where are they?
Don't know. Enoque's vanished.|Marcão hasn't shown up for 2 days.
This job needs more people anyway.
Holy shit! Aren't you a police chief?|Can't deal with this?
He knows everything,|but won't open his mouth.
Find a way for me to have|a word with him, all right?
Marcão's been arrested with 2 pounds|of coke. What the fuck's going on?
Five minutes, okay?
Someone put the finger on me.|Someone wants to fuck me.
- Who?|- Someone who's jealous.
I'm on top, got a brand new car,|dress well.
Some people can't stand seeing|a black guy go up in the world.
- Two pounds of coke?|- It's all lost, Máiquel.
Find a way to get me out of here.|Talk to Santana.
The Drug Squad...
went looking for drugs buried in|Marcão's yard, and found a body.
I can't believe you guys|fucked up like this.
I can smell shit.
No problem, as long as Marcão|doesn't talk, it'll be all right.
You don't understand. There's smell|of shit. You must 've trod in shit.
Holy shit, that nigger sure is dumb.
He's dumb but you're going|to get him out of there.
I can't do a thing.|I've told you a thousand times.
- He was nabbed in other jurisdiction.|- Jurisdiction, what the fuck?
- Are you a police chief or not?|- Easy, man.
There's a little matter called|the law. Honest cops do exist.
Even if I wanted to,|I couldn't release an idiot...
who buried a body in his backyard.
It wasn't Marcão.
I know Marcão.|It wasn't him.
So who was it?|Whose body is it?
I dreamed about Christ last night.
He rang the bell. I opened the|door, He came in and said:
'Erica, you and Máiquel must turn|yourselves in to the police.'
Jesus always wants people|to turn themselves in.
Don't you think I look like Him?
Take a look.
The spitting image.
Máiquel, there's something|I have to tell you.
I told Marlênio|that we killed Cledir.
It's faith that extinguishes|the fire of hell!
It's faith that cleanses your soul!|Faith that purifies your body!
It is faith that saves us!|Please all rise.
Let us join hands.
And now, hand in hand...
I'd like a prayer of faith.|Faith...
in our Lord Jesus.
Erica's not feeling well.|She asked me to fetch you.
Priests can't go around telling|what they heard in confession.
I'm not a Catholic priest.|I'm a pastor.
Erica promised me you'd turn|yourselves in to the police.
I gave her two days.
If you confess everything,|show repentance for your crimes...
you shall be saved|from the fires of hell.
God did not mean us|to be hateful and angry.
If God thinks I should do more,|I'll come back and kill you.
- What happened to your hand?|- Nothing.
- I'll call the pharmacist.|- Don't bother, Gonzaga.
I'd been robbed over 1O times.|I was even shot.
But since I joined Sesepa,|they left me in peace.
I can even stay open all night,|they don't dare to do a thing.
I'd like to thank you, Mr. Máiquel.|Thank you very much.
There's something|I wanted to say to you.
You set curfew in the|neighborhood at 1O p.m.
That 's not good, the night schools|have to send students home earlier.
I'll lift the curfew tonight.|Let everyone know.
What about the park lawn?
You could free the park lawn...
...for the kids to play ball.|- I forbad kids to play on the lawn?
Yes. Someone said they were damaging|the lawn, so you put a stop to it.
No, no. I said grown-ups|couldn't play there.
Children can,|children up to about 10, 11.
You know I like kids.
My name is Paulo Mendes.
Carvalho gave me your number.|I have a company here in Nilópolis.
And I' d like to meet you at Sesepa.
I've got quite a bit of trouble and...
I need to talk to you|about our friend.
Meet me at the club|at 1O p.m., okay?
Marcão was going to squeal.|He was saying that...
he'd drag plenty down with him.|Meaning you and me, damn it.
You've a glorious future|ahead of you.
That traitor of a nigger|was going to destroy you!
Have you had Marcão killed,|Santana?
What else could I have done, man?
I can't believe this.
First Robinson, now Marcão.
You've got to get out|of this world.
Let's confess everything|and escape the fires of hell.
I've been in hell for ages.
My name's Max. I'm a police|detective. May I come in?
This is Erica, my sister.
She's a bit upset.|Right, Erica?
With my sister...|I mean, my wife disappearing.
disappeared, left me.
That's what I'd like|to talk to you about.
- Have you found Cledir?|- I'll do the talking!
How long has|your wife been missing?
A month, more or less.
Do you recognize this bracelet?
It's my wife's.|Where did you find it?
It was found on a corpse|we found buried...
in the backyard of the drug dealer|Marcos de Sousa, known as Marcão.
We think it might be your wife.
Cledir dead? She's dead?
You found her body?
Let me see that again.
- May I keep it?|- No.
What's wrong, Erica?|Are you scared of that cop?
- No one can prove a thing!|- I'm scared of you, Máiquel.
You've changed. You liked going out|with me. You had fun, used to laugh...
Now everything stinks!
You never sit down, never turn|your back, never sleep!
I do everything for you, Erica.|I love you.
Hear me quick, Lord!|I deserved to be punished.
Forgive me, Lord.|I don't want to sin no more.
Hear my prayer, let my claims get to|You. Do not hide Your face from me...
on the day of my anguish, lean Your|ears to me on the day that I call.
I deserved to be punished, forgive|me. I don't want to sin no more.
You know you've|fucked up, don't you?
So you kill your wife,|and bury her...
I didn't mean to. When I pushed|Cledir, she banged her head...
It's no use.|You won't be able to explain it.
The situation's fucked up.
We came to offer you a scheme,|something good for you.
I'm not going to jail,|and I'm not dying.
Listen to our plan, damn it!
You'll be arrested anyway.|So it 'd better be by Santana.
After a while|you'll no longer be news.
Things cool off, people forget.
Remember the guy who killed parents,|brother, grandma, the whole family?
No one remembers him anymore.
Before long some guy who rapes|young girls will come along...
and take your place|in the headlines.
I'll arrange rigged witnesses|and put in the report...
that the whole thing was a setup|by a criminal friend of yours.
No one will be able to prove|a damn thing against you.
And you won't even stay in jail|for long 'cause our lawyer...
is asking the judge to relax|your sentence, got it?
- I won't be arrested, damn it!|- Máiquel, look at me.
It was Marcão who killed Cledir,|okay? Everything's cool, man.
- So you don't want to be arrested?|- No.
So you'll have to spend some time|at Carvalho's place, in Angra.
- Damn it, Angra?|- That's right.
I'm arranging it with Santana.|Take some time off, get a tan.
- Everything will be all right.|- That bastard'll be off the hook...
with your arrest. He'll be a hero|and will do you like he did Marcão.
Marcão, Marcão!|He never needed Marcão!
He needs me.|He earns a fortune through Sesepa.
Galego, you never liked Santana.|They want to help me.
- I'm going to Angra.|- Listen...
Sesepa's dead. It'll lose all its|clients. That investigator...
Max, he's not into money.|He'll get you, the dentist...
Santana... You've got|to get out of here, now!
I get tons of letters,|people love me.
- No one wants me arrested.|- Anyone important?
The people who count are those with|money. To them you're pure poison.
I never want to see you again, jerk.|No way.
The pastor found a place for me,|a long way away. You won't find me.
I took your daughter. You never|gave a damn about her, anyway.
And I took US$ 20,OOO from the safe.
I'm sorry but I had to.
I hope you go fuck yourself|and that your life turns to shit.
Till never again.
I took your daughter.
You never gave a damn|about her, anyway.
I' m pregnant.
Never turn your back, never sleep.
I do everything for you,|and you treat me like a dog.
That bastard'll be off the hook with|your arrest...
POLICE UNCOVERS MURDER BUSINESS|he'll be a hero and will do you...
like he did Marcão.
You've got a problem.
I' m a dentist.
We can helpeach other.
I want you to kill that bastard.
We can help each other.
I want you to kill that bastard.
Hey, son.|You here? Sit down.
How about a little whisky?
Life's so weird.
If you let it, it flows|all by itself, like a river.
But you can harness it|and make life your horse.
You make what you want out of life.
Each of us chooses his fate.
Horse or river.
