All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (6)

  • Venezuelan filmmaker Marcel Rasquin's Hermano is a well-meaning melodrama, equal parts heartfelt and contrived.

    September 16, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Hermano" is well-trod acreage, but there's a vitality here that's easy to appreciate.

    August 23, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The sports-as-savior theme is an old one, but this confident movie, alternately volatile and tender, coats its clichs in winningly natural performances and Enrique Aular's kinetic photography.

    August 23, 2012 | Rating: 3/5
  • The over-the-top opening, which evokes baby Moses in the bulrushes, indicates grand ambitions, but unfortunately the gritty realism of Rasquin's cinematic style is just camouflage for another cliched sports flick.

    August 23, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Rasquin's cinema verite style brings power to the story, and he has coaxed some good performances out of his leads.

  • Scoring goals in soccer is hard. Hermano earns its points too easily.

  • Hermano is part sports film, part neorealist drama and a fully successful debut feature from Venezuelan director Marcel Rasqun.

    April 21, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The story feels driven more by coincidence than authenticity, leading to an eye-rolling climax.

Audience Reviews for Brother

  • Aug 14, 2014
    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.

    Just a quick note; I worked in this production. <b>My name's in the credits</b> But a movie totally worth watching because it is beautiful. I can't even write a review because Hermano has been such a great experience in my life.
