Michael (Ulrich Thomsen; Festen, Inheritance) has everything under control; a successful military career, a beautiful wife (Connie Nielsen; One Hour Photo) and two daughters. His younger brother Jannik (Nicolaj Lie Kaas; The Idiots, Reconstruction) is a drifter, living on the edge. When Michael is sent to Afghanistan on a UN mission it is not long before events take a dramatic turn and Michael is missing in action - presumed dead. Sarah is comforted by Jannik who against all the odds takes responsibility for himself and his brother's family. It soon becomes clear that Jannik and Sarah's feelings have developed beyond mutual sympathy but the fragility of their emotions is constantly under threat as the balance between the two brothers changes forever.

The difficulty with subtitled foreign film is the emotion, thought and story behind words can be lost in translation. The fine performance from a strong cast make sure this definately isn't the case with "Brothers". The raw emotions of lose, desperation, fear and anger are put forward so strongly that it doesn't matter if "Carlsberg" is the extent of your danish, not a shred of drama is lost.
The film moves at a tremendous pace, highlighting the true emotional destruction of war. The focus is taken off the action, and placed on to the families who lose a husband or a brother or a son, left to pick up the pieces, and on the damage done to a returning soldier, and his downward spiral as he survives capture, but at the price of his mind and spirit. There's also a particularly strong scene showing how far a man will go for love and survival.
Take a chance on a Danish great, you won't regret it...
Documentary style, handheld photography renders the perfectly paced narrative immediate and urgent in its appeal. The central performance by Ulrich Thomsen as Michael is breathtaking, for his complex transformation from a confident, loving and jovial man to a menacing, emotional wreck is delivered with consummate ease. Connie Nielsen as the demandingly multifaceted Sarah is uneven in her performance at times, but she brings an effortless sensuality and an unnerving suggestiveness to the role, which make her husband’s jealous suspicions of her infidelity all the more convincing. The supporting cast is superb in their finely nuanced performances, particularly the girls who play the two daughters being astonishingly adept in their emotionally taxing roles. An essential ingredient to the emotive depth of the movie is the poignant score by Johan Söderqvist.
‘Brothers’ is yet another example of Susanne Bier’s exceptional flair for inspired and realistic storytelling. While the film is not as impeccable as her later achievements, it nevertheless is an engrossing, deeply affecting and significant film about issues that we can no longer ignore.
