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)

Even Jan Cornet can't salvage this turkey
7 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is so hopelessly stupid that even lovely and talented Jan Cornet can't save it. He is the ONLY good thing about it and the only reason I gave it even two stars - but even he looks and acts dumb through most of it. The story and the dialog are ridiculous and not believable for a minute.

I love Spanish movies in general, and Cornet is a lot better in Almodóvar's The Skin I Live In, in a much smaller role (even that movie is a disappointment, though - far from Almodóvar's peak; he should have left Banderas in Hollywood), but this movie doesn't cut it.

Cornet definitely has a bright future in the movies, but García de Leániz may be better off writing and directing soap operas.
