Trailer For My Brother The Devil
Review For Movie My Brother The DevilIt's an impressive debut by a director blessed with a strong voice and a knack for bringing a specific cultural milieu to vibrant life, defying convention even while working within its strict limits.
Rick Groen-Globe and Mail
My Brother the Devil brings a fresh and mature perspective to a story of shifting relationships between siblings, clearly marking the Egyptian-Welsh writer-director as someone on a path to greater things.
Linda Barnard-Toronto Star
A story of brothers that's both tough and tender.
Michael O'Sullivan-Washington Post
"My Brother the Devil" is a promising debut that marks El Hosaini as a filmmaker to watch, but one still very much in the developmental stages.
Mark Olsen-Los Angeles Times
For at least part of its length, "My Brother the Devil" brings refreshing changes to a genre badly in need of them.
Farran Smith Nehme-New York Post
Nuances of faith, politics and sexual identity enrich what initially presents as a classic good son-bad son tale, and although the film's melting-pot patois is occasionally too dense to decipher, we get the gist.
Jeannette Catsoulis-New York Times
An often gripping coming-of-age story involving rival gangs, societal pressures, self-discovery, brotherly affection, and drugs.
Eric D. Snider-About.com
The attention El Hosaini gives to the physical structures in this neighbourhood is a poignant reminder of the lack of focus there generally is on the people who live inside them.
Nathalie Atkinson-National Post
The film takes an insightful look at subtle cultural and socioeconomic differences, as well as similarities, during troubled economic times.
Ultimately feels a little flat, but there's promise that the director will carry on to stronger work, with several scenes here delivering exceptional grace and texture that all but guarantees a bright cinematic future.
Sally El Hosaini shows a deft hand in her story telling and direction belying her inexperience behind the camera.
Robin Clifford-Reeling Reviews
When a both a dog and friend of Rashid's are killed in a violent gang encounter, El Hosaini frames both of their lifeless bodies on the street in a powerful image that tells of two innocents both bred to fight.
Laura Clifford-Reeling Reviews
[El Hosaini] has a devil of a time getting a handle on this complicated story.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)-St. Paul Pioneer Press
Familiar youth crime/coming-of-age framework, novel setting and focus group.
Kelly Vance-East Bay Express
El Housani's freshman effort is certainly visually accomplished, but there's precious little meat on its bones.
Highly recommended. (Writer-director) El Hosaini handles the various volatile relationships within the film with intelligence and sensitivity.
Fr. Chris Carpenter-Movie Dearest
An engrossing debut from director Sally El Hosaini, My Brother the Devil is as authentic, emotionally complex and powerfully acted as any film you'll see this year.
Simon Brookfield-We Got This Covered
Unsure performances and some decades-old gangster-film stereotypes hamper this acute, beautifully shot portrait of Egyptian teenagers fighting to survive in a rough London neighborhood.
Chris Barsanti-Film Journal International
With My Brother the Devil, writer-director Sally El Hosaini tells a story both operatic in its implications and quotidian in its sensory, day-to-day details.
