    "Querelle" meets some "Eastern Boys"

  2. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film Brothers of the Night

  3. Pipim's rating of the film Brothers of the Night

    3+ La deuxième moitié du film est très belle, la première un peu molle, et plus consensuelle que ce que j'avais imaginé. Reste un documentaire complexe et original!

  4. Aaken's rating of the film Brothers of the Night

    Filmed like a fiction film, the boundary between the genres is very blurred. Cinematography is gorgeous, the boys are luminous, very touching in the way they play with their own stories, the way they re-imagine themselves, the connection they have with each other. Patric Chiba never indulges in any social commentary. We will naturally think of James Bidgood, Jean Genet and Fassbinder, Jean Cocteau...

  5. Paul Prt's rating of the film Brothers of the Night

  6. Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film Brothers of the Night

    Documentary and blatant artifice, blunt realism and colorful romanticism, Pasolini and Fassbinder. A hagiographic and deeply undramatic hybrid that beautifully expresses its subject’s complicated anguishes, desires and vibrant vitality. At times, it seems like the entire film is an intoxicating dance of self-conscious animalistic freedom before an unstoppable dawn brings with it the advent of change and uncertainty.

  7. José Neves's rating of the film Brothers of the Night

    Kids, only kids, and this movie never forget this. Documenting their wanderings in an exclusionary society gives them the ability to detach from it with a superior attitude when enable them a representation of themselves and some of their coupling situations and desires, materialistic of course, but that, with the matters of the cinema, become euphoria.
