Critic Reviews for Fratricide
A hard-hitting, ultimately tragic tale of the struggle for identity among Kurdish emigres in urban Germany.
Arslen has a sharp eye for telling detail and draws memorable performances from his inexperienced cast in a bitter demonstration of how for too many people life is truly nasty, brutish and short.
At the start of Yilmaz Arslan's somber drama, it's hard to understand why the young narrator sounds so embittered. By the end, his sadness is devastatingly clear.
Shot with such grit that the lenses seem coated with grease, the film offers a myopic impression of an unnamed German city, and that's probably the point.
Devotees of seamy '70s cinema should give this little film a look.
The familiar story of the innocent soul who travels from the country to the big, bad city receives a thorough workout in this crude attempt at a cinematic bildungsroman.
