    • Synopsis
    • At the height of the 2012 attacks and counterattacks between military police and organized crime in Sao Paulo, the lives of five people collide: a young man on leave from prison, his straitlaced brother, his best friend, a rookie cop, and a young actress with whom the prisoner falls in love. Set over 72 hours, the film weaves the personal, political, and cultural into an explosive mix that makes for a powerful cinematic experience. If God Comes Let Him Bring a Gun is the solo feature debut by one of Brazil’s most promising directors. Luis Dantas, a former photojournalist, is now a professor of film at the University of Sao Paulo and has directed several award-winning shorts. Not only is the film beautifully shot, but Dantas also commands terrific performances from his cast, which features a grown-up Vinicius de Oliveira, the little boy in Central Station.
