I saw it two days ago.. very original, very familiar at the same time though.
I think that's what made the movie. It was like a lovey dovey chick flick mixed with City of God.

It reminded me of a Charles Dickens adaptation like Great Expectations or Oliver Twist. Lots of obstacles and adversity throughout the film, a very good underdog story.
