A welcome contribution
25 September 2017 | by mucahid_anikiSee all my reviews

The war in Syria is a very hot news-item. Especially in the Netherlands as a lot of young jihadi's go there and participate in the conflict. A lot has been written about these people, but the media often lacks a nuanced perspective. It is therefore good that this movie is portraying a more nuanced picture of people from Europe participating in this conflict. Broeders (in English Brothers) is a movie about three brothers who happen to be in Syria because of various reasons. The movie contains elements of comedy, drama, and even action, and it is a very welcome contribution to Dutch cinema. I really hope to see more of this Director.
