After the death of their elderly mother, three estranged brothers -- a judge, Raffaele (Philippe Noiret) ; a counselor for troubled boys, Rocco (Vittorio Mezzogiorno) ; and a laborer, Nicola (Michele Placido) -- return to their family home in the south of Italy to mourn. Life has been difficult for the men, and they spend time in deep thought, contemplating how their progressive ideals have been lost to injustice and the various compromises they've made for their careers and families.

Audience Reviews for Tre Fratelli (Three Brothers)

  • Dec 15, 2006
    [font=Century Gothic]Skillfully directed by Francesco Rosi, "Three Brothers" is a subtly powerful and surprisingly unsentimental movie that flows smoothly between the past, present and future about three brothers returning to the small village where they grew up for their mother's funeral. Raffaele(Philippe Noiret) is a judge about to hear a high-profile terrorism case. Rocco(Vittorio Mezzogiorno) is a social worker who works with juvenile delinquents. Nicola(MIchele Placido) is a factory worker who is separated from his wife. He has brought along his daughter, Marta(Marta Zoffoli), along for the ride. It is interesting to note that the brothers represent different stages of criminality. Rocco tries to reform troubled youth. Nicola is moving closer to violence in his union activities while Raffaele sits in judgment. The brothers live in the cities of a violently shifting Italy while the town they grew up in has changed very little over the years. To the villagers, the outside world exists only as something to be watched on television.[/font]
