Critic Reviews for My Brother's Name Is Robert and He Is an Idiot (Mein Bruder heißt Robert und ist ein Idiot)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • This movie has moments of real interest and visual beauty, but it is hampered by the most tiresome arthouse clich: the idea that drifting sensual moodiness and listless sexual tension finally has to be crowned or possibly redeemed with violence.

    February 22, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • When you're almost grateful for a late bout of torture porn to break up the tedium, it doesn't say much for the film's ideas, however poetically expressed and visualized they may be.

  • Groning doesn't quite manage to tie his more general ideas about time to the very specific transformative nature of time for adolescents beyond the generic idea that a single weekend - as illustrated here - can feel like a lifetime.

    February 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Executed with such cold, slick precision, the images are likely to haunt you long after the credits rolled.

    October 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Notwithstanding the echoes of Cocteau and Malick, there is undoubtedly something different, fresh, even devil-may-care audacious about the first two thirds of the movie.

    February 24, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Whether or not the payoff is truly substantial, at the very least Grning offers the kind of challenge that most contemporary film-makers wouldn't even attempt.
