EIFF 2016: ‘Brothers’ ★★★

A labour of love to rival that of Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, Brothers is a charming study of growing up, a preservation of memory and lessons learned from a mother to her own sons. Norwegian documentary filmmaker Aslaug Holm is lucky to have two such thoroughly likeable and comfortable subjects. Filmed from their infancy into adolescence, they are completely at ease being on camera – save from a few moments of irritation – and mature in front of our eyes.

Brothers made its UK premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on 18th June – read the full review here.
