Director: Nicolo Donato
More than just a gay neo-Nazi film.
Violent and affectionate, brutal and touching, Nicolo Donato's feature debut is a tale that delves into the dichotomy of homosexuality within the ranks of skinheads.
The clandestine lovers are Lars, a young man who leaves the army for the fist-happy camaraderie of the ‘brotherhood', and his mentor Jimmy. For two men accustomed to beating up on homosexuals, the unfolding of a delicate romance challenges their world views.
Brotherhood has won multiple awards, including an award for best film at the Rome Film Festival.
“The passion between Lars and Jimmy is powerful, the sense of liberation they feel in each other's arms a heady mix of desire and support.” - Variety
