Movie Details

A belated reunion between two estranged brothers is marred by distrust and sibling rivalry in this family drama from director Rolando Colla. Hamid is a forty year-old Algerian man currently living in Brussels. He makes his living by working for an illegal underground network suspected of financing terrorism, and suspects that the authorities are monitoring his every move. One day, seemingly out of the blue, Hamid receives a telephone call from his brother Louis, whom he hasn't seen in over three decades. Despite the fact that he believes the authorities orchestrated the call, Hamid accepts his brother's request to join him in Switzerland so that the brothers may visit their ageing mother. Later, as Hamid and Louis return to Brussels, there is no question that the police are closing in. While Hamid remains steadfast in his determination to discover what role his brother played in the apparent sting operation, Louis probes to learn the reason why he and his brother have been separated for so long. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
