Product description

My Brother The Devil tells the story of two brothers tested loyalty as their paths collide amidst a violent world of drugs and gangs.

Mo is a young boy growing up in a traditional Egyptian household, but beyond the front door of the family's modest London flat is a completely different world - the streets of Hackney. The impressionable Mo idolizes his handsome and charismatic older brother Rashid and wants to follow in his footsteps. However, Rashid wants a different life for his little brother and will do what ever it takes to put him through college. Aching to be seen as a tough guy himself, Mo takes a job that unlocks a fateful turn of events that threatens to tear the brothers apart.

My Brother The Devil creates a vivid picture of growing up on the streets and the pressures that surround them. Bold and uncompromising, this will be unlike any other urban drama you have seen.

This comes across as a wonderfully modest film, ambitious only to tell its eventually affecting story without excessive glitz, glamour or machismo. The main characters are male but it feels like there's a female touch here, as see their sensitivities play out amid a suitably ambiguous plot - it's neither about one thing or another (to its benefit) and as such demonstrates the trials, tribulations and confusion of boys growing into men. Family and brotherhood is on the agenda here (the ManFam crew here presumably a reference to the Tottenham ManDem). The acting is uniformly fabulous - seriously Oscar-worthy in fact - and it would be hard not to become absorbed as the script is taut and delivery loose enough to remain realistic; there is space in scenes for the mood to develop, lines are unhurried, half of the mood is unspoken, wonderfully understated for a movie of this genre, and the direction complements it all brilliantly. If you have any doubts at the beginning, by the end you will likely be very glad you stayed.

Although released back in 2012, My Brother the Devil is a film that has only just been brought to my attention. I'm not even going to bother listing the awards that this film has won but, trust me, it's a pretty darn long list. This fact makes it all the more surprising that this film isn't more famous as its list of accolades is really impressive being praised for its cinematography and actors by England and Europe.

This film revolves around an Egyptian family living in Hackney with themes such as family, love and gang crime. Rash (James Floyd) is a key member of the local gang who's always got his wits about him and knows the ins and outs of making a living on the downlow in his local area. Despite being pretty good at his 'job', drug dealing and any other sort of petty crime the gang leader wants him involved in, Rash wants out. He wants a better life for his younger brother, Mo, and his family and works hard to do this. However, leaving the gang isn't as simple as walking away and things get very complicated, very quickly. Meanwhile, Mo, who idolises his older brother, is doing everything in his power to become a part of the gang that Rash is pulling away from. All he wants is for his brother to be proud of him and believing that getting in with 'boys' is the way to do it, Mo finds himself involved in the gang's activities.

With a film such as this, it can be quite easy to overplay the 'gangster', in terms of voice, language, mannerisms etc. but I was really impressed by what I would call the 'authenticity' of this film. Though the area of London I live in is nothing like Hackney, I have met quite a lot of people who talk in a similar fashion to Rash, Mo and their friends so I highly commend the actors for capturing what I imagine Hackney life is actually like.

This tells the story of two brothers Mo, the younger and Rashid (James Floyd who played Freddie Mercury in the TV biopic of Kenny Everett) they are both British but from Egyptian parents. As such they have been drawn to the local gangs that deal in drugs and guns and violence. They live in Hackney which has one of the most cluttered number of gangs any where in the UK like `London Fields', `Hoxton Boys' and `Legends of Stokie' to name but three. Kids actually come from outside the borough to take part in the real inter gang rivalry.

In the film the gang is a mixed bunch who call them selves `DMG' which is a code for `drugs, money and guns', that will fool the `Feds' guys!. They have full on youth swagger and macho lame sensibilities. Then Mo gets a bit too involved and Rashid wants to get out, but in between ignoring his girlfriend showing disrespect to his erstwhile `homies', he also develops a taste for more than what the gang has to offer, or will ever accept. Everything is then set up for a big head on collision.

This is actually not a bad effort, it is well acted, shot and directed, but some will be wanting sub titles when the `kidz' are talking all `street', so be warned. The story has one foot in reality but is not so far from the possible to be of at least some entertainment value. There is not much actual bedroom stuff here and the violence is realistic but far from gratuitous so nothing to frighten the horses or anything. Director Sally El Hosaini has done a pretty good job in this 111 minute film. It will not be for everyone so if you want a full on action fest then avoid this one completely, but if you like a semi, gritty Brit gang flick then this might well do.

"My Brother The Devil" (2012 release from the UK; 110 min.) brings the story of two teenager brothers living in the socially and racially diverse (and charged) neighborhood of Hackney, London. The younger brother Mo (played by Fady Elsayed) worships his older brother Rashid (played by James Floyd). Rashid is a member of a teenage gang called DMG (which stands for "drugs, money, guns"). Rashid does not want Mo to follow in his footsteps and instead is mapping out a better life for his younger brother. In the first half, we see Rashid making drug deliveries in and around the neighborhood, and at some point becoming involved in a fight with a rival gang, leading to tragic results. Then there is yet another significant turn in the movie involving Rashid, which I did not see coming at all and I will not reveal as it surely would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: writer-director Sally El Hosaini brings a gritty take on what it's like to be an ethnic youth growing up in London. This is not the London that tourists know! While there is a lot of tension throughout the movie, the actual violence that is shown on screen is kept to a surprising minimum, and that is just fine with me. As a complete aside, the movie plays of course in the authentic British (Hackney) accent, and as a result I had difficulty at times to understand the dialogue.

The screening I saw this at a few months ago in Washington, DC (at the E Street Landmark Theatre) was absolutely packet, by the way. Bottom line: if you are in the mood for a quality foreign movie that is MILES away from your standard Hollywood fare, "My Brother The Devil" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
