The Best Cult Movie of the New Millennium!
Original Spanish/Argentinean title: HERMANOS
also known as BROTHERS IN BLOOD
director: Daniel De La Vega
starring: Alejandro Parrilla · Sergio Boris · Jimena Anganuzzi · Carlos
the center of the film is Matías - an excessively kind, overweight
nerd - who gets constantly bullied by everyone, from his boss to his
aunt, from co-workers to nightclub bouncers. He's secretly in love with
Eugenia, a young woman from his office but she's committed to a real
jerk who also works there. [This is a very common premise, right? But,
wait--] Director De La Vega introduces a new character, Nicholas, who
happens to be an old chum from grade school. He's a confidence man who
wants to help Matías challenge everyone who has given him a hard
time. [He may also be the devil; or he might not exist at all. But that's
just the beginning--] De La Vega doesn't let ANYTHING
slide like normal. He sets up a scene only to let it spin into a different
stratosphere and as the film morphs from comedy to horror, fantasy to
stark reality, the viewer realizes... there's never been anything
like this before.
Daniel De La Vega is suddenly receiving International recognition. To
date he has helmed only a handful of films (including NECROPHOBIA),
but already he is hailed as "this generation's horror master."
The praise is mostly because he puts his fingerprint on each film. His
movies are distinctly HIS.
