While working, they had some problems.
The direction of the film decided to start the shots after noticing the presence of residents in the windows of buildings of Lapa. With the aim of achieving the scenes, the production asked for people to leave their windows. Upon request, the shooting resumed.
Aiming to ensure that everything would work, the production bothered to set up
a special security scheme in place - which turned into a film set
between midnight and 7 o'clock in the morning.
The team closed an entire block for long. To access the site, residents needed throughout the day and at night, provide proof of residence. The production also rented apartments and windows between $ 50 and $ 500
reais, depending on the distance of where everything is filmed for the
The neighborhood of Lapa, which is famous as a meeting point, the bars had closed. According to rumors, the production paid between $ 10,000 and $ 20,000 for owners
of establishments that needed to halt its sales depending on the film.
