Brothers (2017) 15

Netherlands | 2017 | 106 min.

Lukas and Alexander, brothers, are opposites, but they have a very strong bond. Lukas is quite shy, looks up to his high-spirited older brother, and follows him everywhere. When Alexander decides to go to France, Lukas goes along. The two grow closer on their road trip south. During a stopover in a French village, however, the differences between the brothers are painfully exposed, and it becomes clear that Lukas will have to go his own way. It is a decisive moment, and the start of a quest for his own identity.
