One to be a classic
18 May 2006 | by (Hillerod, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is a classic to me. Being a younger brother, the interaction between the 2 brothers lives seem so clear to me. I can totally relate to this movie, and that makes me wan't to give it 10. The movies ability to touch me so, makes it so real, and the directors understanding of brotherly love and the life of the people in their situation is so insightful, it almost scares me.

That was the overall impression. A few scenes of a movie making movies worth remembering, makes it all worth while, and cements them as brilliant. A few of them is:

the background of the city, changing to a blood raging city, when Janus takes the pills, shows GREAT movie art. The crooner music playing in the background at an old lady's apartment, annoying Janus, is also a classic. And also, not to forget, when the younger brother breaks his arm, showing how little he cares and how much he has learned, define him as being marked for life, for his and his brothers sake.

Ohh, and when the younger brother tells why he ran away from the foster home, I just laughed my lungs out. Perfect comment.

A sad and wonderful tale of the choices of a family that failed.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. Period!
