An unsparing neo-noir with the structure and inevitability of classic drama...
Within the group, the confusion between rough, homoerotic fellowship among straight men and homosexuality (or the threat of it) sets up a paranoid electric charge.
Adding hot naked men to a predictable narrative doesn't equal titillating or taboo; it just means you've dressed up a messy melodrama.
Sounds trashy, sounds silly, but first-time director Nicolo Donato, who wrote the screenplay with Rasmus Birch, and a superb ensemble refuse to wink, resulting in a film that constantly subverts expectation.
A compelling look at Denmark's hidden race issues and proves to be a stunning, teary-eyed romance between the most unlikely of characters
The acts of violence and hatred they commit are so appalling, that by the film's inevitable tragic end, I was unable to muster the requisite sympathy.
The characters in Nicolo Donato's Brotherhood are the most hateful sort. ... Yet the Danish director manages to elicit sympathy for his leading men.
The love that dare not speak between two neo-Nazis, and are we really supposed to care?
As the film speeds along, it suggests but never satisfactorily answers why someone as intelligent and eloquent (let alone possibly gay) as Lars would hang out with a bunch of white supremacists.
This movie does the impossible. Make a gay neo-Nazi lead character sympathetic in a blend of "Brokeback Mountain" and "Made in Britain".
This tedious, occasionally risible melodrama is a clumsily unconvincing portrait of gay romance in a neo-fascist underworld.
