Critic Reviews for Petits Frères
Worth checking out -- especially for the naturalistic performances by the feisty Touly and the rest of the young cast.
Captures the vulnerability and aimlessness of its unfortunate characters with a heart-in-your-throat rawness.
Cinematic loitering... enough to make you yearn for the halcyon days of, ya know, adulthood...
French director Jacques Doillon has a knack for presenting in natural ways the hardships and challenges of youth.
The unforced performances are crucial in maintaining the film's sense of realism and immediacy.
Its final scenes are so slapdash and rambling that one wonders whether the young actors have assumed writing and directing duties as well.
