MVFF: My Brothers (C)

My Brothers is a good try, but in the end just doesn’t make it. It’s an Irish film about three brothers who’s father is dying. It’s a combination road-trip and coming-of-age film, although the ages of the brothers are roughly seven through 18. The actors are superb, but I just never got into the film. IT was just too slow and self-aware. The cinematography was self-indulgent and the music was driving me crazy. I’m sitting here trying to figure out what would have saved this movie that really does have potential. Maybe it could have been saved in the cutting room. I wish I could recommend this one, but I can’t.
