The Elite Squad( Portuguese :Tropa de Elite,pronounced: [ˈtɾɔpɐ dʒi eˈlitʃi]lit. "Elite Troop") is a 2007 Brazilian film directed by José Padilha . The film is a semi-fictional account of the BOPE ( Portuguese :Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais), the Special Police Operations Battalion of the Rio de Janeiro Military Police . It is the second feature film and first fiction film of Padilha, who had previously directed the documentaryBus 174. The script was written by Bráulio Mantovani , based on the bookElite da Tropaby sociologist Luiz Eduardo Soares and two former BOPE captains, André Batista and Rodrigo Pimentel .

The Elite Squadwas an outstanding commercial success, and became a cultural phenomenon in Brazil. The film won the Golden Bear at the 2008 Berlin Film Festival . Its sequel,The Elite Squad 2, released in Brazil on October 8, 2010, holds industry records in the country for ticket sales and grossed revenue.

Set in 1997, in Rio de Janeiro ,The Elite Squadfollows the lives and exploits of a BOPE captain named Nascimento and his two potential heirs-in-command, Neto Gouveia and André Matias, rising from the ranks of general PMERJ (the state military police) to BOPE (later it is revealed that Nascimento wants to leave the force because his wife is pregnant with his first child).

While Neto Gouveia is a quick-tempered, tougher man, André Matias refuses to compromise his ideals of peace and equality. The latter is also a student of Law at a university in Rio, where his upper class friends are unaware of his job as a policeman, and are clearly shown as "spoiled" kids that tend to see the police as a repressive unit.

Preceding the visit of Pope John Paul II to Rio, the plot unfolds and we are introduced to the day-to-day drug busting operations inside Rio'sfavelas, ruled by well-armed and powerful drug lords, led by the Brazilian elite unit, BOPE , and the corruption that affects part of the PMERJ.
