Storyline

The Night of the brother ("La Noche del Hermano") is a chiaroscuro tale in which the characters' not always explicit feelings cover the gamut from darkness to light through the thin line between love and fear. Because the events of life are often less astonishing than the way they are shown to us. Written by Producciones La Iguana s.l. (es)

pure and rare beauty
2 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Difficult to classify, the film is made up with the best of elements from genres such as film noir and post existentialist western. Beautifully designed as a reflection of good and evil, it portraits a delicate metaphorical drama about fate and the right to accept it or not. Determined to stay away from empty modern trends, the film has elements of the Greek tragedy mixed with those of a dark psychological thriller while searching for the roots of good old cinematic narration. The story is full of echoes of considerable strength, a poignant atmosphere that springs from the underground raw violence that dominates the landscape it portraits and the characters that inhabit it. It combines subtlety and intensity with performances that reflect efficiently pain and sentimental contradiction. It is, no doubt, a rare and pure beauty for these times.
