(Italy/2007—directed by Daniele Luchetti)

A smash hit in Italy, My Brother is an Only Child reunites director Luchetti with the screenwriters of his acclaimed The Best of Youth. Set in a small town in the 1960s and 70s, it’s the story of two brothers who want to change the world – one as a prime mover in the local Communist Party, the other as a Fascist. What begins as a simple tale of sibling rivalry becomes an indelible portrait of the social upheavals of those turbulent times, as well as an unexpected love story. An intensely satisfying cinematic work about dreams and disillusionments, My Brother harks back to the exuberance of the early classics by Bellochio and Bertolucci. Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals. (108 min.)

“What makes it so alive and entertaining is how it dramatizes the eternal tug-of-war between political conviction and personal experience.” –David Edelstein, New York Magazine
