Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 05/01/2005
"Thomsen's quietly simmering performance is BROTHERS' best asset..."
New York Times - 05/06/2005
"[A] gripping psychological drama....With a fine balance of compassion and hardheadedness."
Los Angeles Times - 05/13/2005
"BROTHERS has an exact sense of emotional truth and a respect for the intricacy of character."
Uncut - 06/01/2005
"[B]lessed with some of the most heartfelt performances you'll see in any film this year."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/20/2005
"[E]xpressive storytelling, which accomplishes the rare feat of believably incorporating violence in another part of the world into an intimate study of shifting domestic relationships."

Product Description:

Connie Nielsen, who has played pivotal roles in such English-language films as GLADIATOR, THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE, and RUSHMORE, is the powerful and emotional heart of BROTHERS, a moving Danish film set in her home country. Directed by Susanne Bier (who made the Dogme 95 film OPEN HEARTS), BROTHERS tells the story of two very different brothers: Jannik (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is a drunken loser who has just been released from prison for bank robbery and assault, while Michael (Ulrich Thomsen) is a well-respected army major and family man, with a wife, Sarah (Nielsen), and two kids. But when Michael goes off on a mission to Afghanistan to rescue a captured radar man, his helicopter is shot down and he is assumed to have been killed in action. The news devastates Sarah and her in-laws, while Jannik becomes more reckless before stepping in to help her and the kids build a new life. But as Jannik and Sarah grow close, it is discovered that Michael has survived--and has done something that haunts him and threatens everything and everyone. Bier's film is filled with tender moments as well as bitter, frightening, fast-paced scenes that are hard to forget. Nielsen is a standout as Sarah, who tries to balance love and loss and then love again with a man she's not sure she knows anymore.
