Storyline

Josh is about to turn 30; he's mentally retarded, and likes to play at being a vampire. His sister Nicole is 15, and dealing with her impending womanhood; middle brother Mike is the "normal" one, but in some ways the most childish - his latest conquest is Nadine, who runs the dog kennel at his security guard job. Nic is fixated on getting laid, and watches Mike and Nadine through the skylight with Josh. Josh also gets fixated on sex, though he has no clear idea what it's all about, and in particular on Nadine; to Mike's chagrin, she seems more interested in Josh than in him.

Good example of New German Cinema
6 February 2002 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Mein Bruder der Vampir" is a good example of New German Cinema. Young directors like Sven Taddicken leave behind or use deliberately the traditions of German, European or American cinema, combining the best of all worlds without being eclectic. Taddicken and Pacht did not try to copy one style, one manner of storytelling or other things successful WHEN DONE BY NON-GERMANS. Instead, it's a uniquely German film, because it combines so many influences and succeeds in creating a single new style. On the other hand, neither is the comedy dominating the plot, nor are the tragic moments too earnest or morally laden - although the conclusion of the film may be too daring for some people. Another great film by a great upcoming director - watch out for Sven Taddicken!

A strong 8 out of 10.
