An honest Venezuelan drama that benefits from the heartfelt way that it depicts the intense relationship between the two brothers and how much they care about each other, and it reaches a solid ending that reflects a harsh reality where dreams get shattered by misery and violence.

A gritty melodrama from Venezuela, fusing possibly the two most stereotypical concerns a Latin American film could possibly have: soccer and drug dealers. Still, not bad - well-acted, takes itself seriously, and has a surprising and fairly powerful ending.

Bravo! A movie worth watching; if you like sports, bros, or mothers. I enjoyed it. Well done.

Great acting... Touching drama! Very proud that it's made in my other home country: Venezuela.

"Hermano" takes a lot of clichés from other sports movies. But when it's combined by a story that tries to portray the difficulty of life in a place that's no man land, with a high focus on ethical dilemmas, characters whom feel simpathy with and twists and turns that are vital. At the end you're left with the sensation that filmmakers created with this movie, something reminiscent.

"Hermano" is a greatly delivered South American social drama reminiscent of the Brazilian movie "City of God"...which, however, falls short when it comes to pulling a punch for its ending.

The winner of Best Film, Audience Award and Critics Award at the 2010 Moscow International Film Festival delivers a truly powerful story.

You may not grasp the depth of this movie outside of Latin America --and it does hit some sports-drama clichĂ (C)s-- but the poignancy of the tale should be enough to draw you in. This is the reality of the slums of Caracas --and it only scratches the surface. Beautiful movie. Plus: Eliu Armas really was a poor kid from these slums before acting in this movie.

A wonderful movie that avoid cliches turning the dramatics threads every five minutes... a different finale and an incredible audio mix and sound track...

FĂștbol y familia! Hermano representa un drama Venezolano ambientado en los barrios de Caracas. Honesta y sensible, un tema universal sobre el talento deportivo que se encuentra rodeado de pobreza y violencia. Una de las mejores pelĂ­culas Venezolanas en mucho tiempo.

Such a good movie, "Hermano" does what it sets out to do- it is a sports movie with brothers who are lifted up by the sport, in this case soccer. The adoption of the better and more innocent brother after they find him in the streets leads to the older brother playing protector and maybe doing some shady things to keep his family afloat. The sport and his family are the pure things that keep him grounded. Both are forced into making choices because of the environment they are living in, and soccer remains the lifeline that the audience ends up rooting for them both to grab onto and not let go.

Films like "Hermano" refurbish Latino cinema. This is something fresh and exciting, just like the sport of football.
