MY BROTHER IS AN ONLY CHILD

$27.23 incl. GST

Set in the southern Italian city of Latina against the backdrop of the turbulent ’60’s & ’70’s, this wonderfully rich and passionate family drama centres on two polictically estranged brotehrs. When we first meet Accio (a fantastic performance by Elio Germano) he is young, impulsive and volatile. The bane of his parent’s existence, he pick fights relentlessly, expounds Fascist ideology, and is a constant source of family embarrassment. His older brother Manrico (Italian heartthrob Riccardo Scamarcio), in contrast, is handsome, charismatic and loved by all. Perhaps not as naturally polictally minded, Manrico is nonetheless swept up in the Communist fervour after following his working class father into factory work. With the eventsof Italy’s history marching on in the foreground, the brothers’ adventures unfold, and depsite their differences, the men that emerge may be less at odds than their adolescent politics suggest. Infused with a good dose of Italian energy and humour My Brother Is An Only Child is a vibrant film of social conflict and brotherly love.
