Director Aleksei Balabanov's matter-of-fact depiction of his protagonist's exploits conveys the blunt harshness of post-Cold War Russia.

If anything, this slickly done gangster thriller should be taken as a political warning by the West that Russia is a wounded animal and still dangerous...

A cold-looking crime movie that is certainly interesting, even if it's also grim and humorless.

Audience Reviews for Brother

Another film from the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival list. Also a Kino Film. If you haven't checked out Kino films its time you did. This movie was filmed in Russia, has English subtitles. About 2 brothers, 1 just discharged from the military service, the other working with the Russian Mafia in St Petersburg, the brother who gets out of the army goes to St peters burgh to find his brother, and in the end takes over brothers position and sends his brother home to aging mother. My review doesn't give it justice, well worth the watch. 3 1/2 stars
