Yes, Pixote is a very hard movie about street boys. But if my memory is good (I saw it when it came out) the street boys gangs are not organised than in the City of God. It's more about the errance of a young boy in the street (he met a prostitue who has just aborted in toilets).

          City of God is not very far (subject/style...) from the famous Pixote (A lei do mas fraco) from Hector Babenco (81)...very much worth seeing too...
