In late 2002, the prison announced its closure. Although this film is not a documentary, it also faithfully records life in prison, which makes it even more meaningful.

He said that he used prison as a metaphor for a situation where there is no escape, the most extreme situation that human beings can live in. In prison, most of man's activities are severely restricted and suppressed, and he has to muster up all his courage to fight for survival. Here, it is not enough to just suffer the punishment, one must fight for life.

Carandiru quotes

  • Lady Di: I've come to take the test.

    Médico - Physician: Please, take a seat. First, I'd like to ask you a few questions, Lady Di.

    Médico - Physician: And partners, how many?

    Lady Di: Oh, about 2000.
