The father is a cop, the son is a criminal, and the show is a suspense drama woven around familial conflict. Bollywood masala, anyone? Well, “Dom” is based on a true story that happened in Brazil, the pre-credits announce. Truth can be stranger than fiction.DOM Season 1 Download.
Brazilian filmmaker Breno Silveira’s lavish saga throws a heady mix of drugs, sex and guns into a poignant relationship drama that lingers. The series is unapologetic in stamping crime as a way of life in Rio de Janeiro – from the city’s simmering favelas to the posh high-rises – even as it tries to understand what gives birth to crime and criminals.“Dom” is story of young Pedro (Gabriel Leone), the son of policeman Victor Dantas (Flavio Tolezani). The premise becomes clear right at the start, as we find Pedro partying away with cocaine and booze with his buddy in the slums of Rio. His recklessness is a trait that is crisply established and despite his seemingly normal middle-class upbringing, Pedro will go from drug addict to becoming the leader of a gang that aces in robbing houses of the super-rich.DOM Season 1 Download.
The plot actually draws from a real incident that made it to Brazilian newspapers back in the 2000s. Stories about the “Little Playboy with blond hair and blue eyes” still abound the net, proving the unending curiosity about such a protagonist.
Silveira and his co-writers (Higia Ikeda, Fabio Mendes, Carolina Neves, and Marcelo Vindicato) spice up that true story with abundant nudity and violence to make “Dom” a gripping watch, yet never losing touch with the basics of storytelling. To make the narrative interesting, the writers constantly swing between past and present, showing Victor as a youth (Filipe Braganca) who joins police intelligence.
