Storyline

Adam looks back, with affection, to his childhood in a small suburban house, with his mum, his crippled and alcoholic dad, their bird Jeanette, and his older brother, who wears an eye patch, has asthma, and gets blamed for things even when he's not around. The boys are boon companions, swiping money from their napping dad and heading for Ruby's store to buy lollies. They draw, collect cans, and watch the brother's pet lizard eat flies (occasionally giving it a snail). Adam's brother has a collection of cigarette butts, and he has a dream: to be an acrobat like their father was before his accident. Can dreams come true? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Weird but very, very captivating
5 January 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very strange short film that is also very captivating. Oddly, however, when this film was shown on cable TV, it was called "Uncle" but this is NOT the correct title, but "Brother". Uncle was another video by the same director--part of a trilogy made up of UNCLE, COUSIN and BROTHER.

The film is a strange journey through claymation into the world of the narrator as he talks about his childhood. All the family is introduced, but the bulk of this film focuses on the narrator's odd brother. This brother had a lazy eye, was an asthmatic and was a very strange kid--most of which made me laugh--especially when the claymation animation was so cute and enlivened the narration. However, at the end, a poignant moment occurs--making this a very sad tale indeed.

While there have been many claymation films before AND many which had better animation, rarely was I as touched or laughed as much as I did here. I particularly liked the rather dead-pan narration and the incredible weirdness of the animation. A sweet little film--it got me looking for COUSIN and UNCLE so I could complete the trilogy.
