Ó Paí, Ó (colloquial form of "Olhe Para Isso, Olhe", translated as Look At This, Look) is a 2007 Brazilian drama film directed by Monique Gardenberg. It tells the story of cortiço residents in Pelourinho, the historical center of Salvador, Bahia on the last day of carnaval. Lacking money but not desire for amusement, they get by on creativity, irony, sensuality, and music.

The film inspired a TV series, also named Ó Paí, Ó, broadcast on Rede Globo. The 10-episode show premiered on October 31, 2008, and also stars Lázaro Ramos.
