Synopsis:
When Chechen veteran, Danila (Sergei Bodrov Jr.), is sent – by his mother – to live with his brother in St. Peterburg he finds himself in the heart of the city's seedy underbelly. Once there, he meets a girl, discovers new music and gets himself a job... as a mafia hitman. When his brother, who also works as a hitman, gets into trouble, it's up to Danila to look out for him. Employing the cold, calculating efficiency he learnt during his combat training days, he risks his life for his own blood. Soon, however, family betrayal rears its ugly head, and things turn bad.
A powerful examination of life in a society hardened by violence and crime, Aleksei Balabanov's 'Brother' is an unnerving look at the consequences of conscription and war upon a generation of young Russians.

Mediocre Russian - Brother review by Pb

Spoiler Alert
08/05/2019

Dull and predictable tale from 90's Russia. Spend 90 minutes watching that countries better films of which there are many. However if depressing shots of St Petersburg and a thin story is your bag then enjoy!
