3 stars out of 5 -- Luchetti keeps the drama surprisingly light. Vibrantly shot using handheld cameras, this is an amusing, engagingly acted film.

3 stars out of 5 -- [With] Daniele Luchetti's warm and intimate directorial style and Germano's magnetic, tremendously modulated central performance.

It's an engrossing political love story, with a strong sense of the shadings within the daily lives of these characters. Full Review

The performances are astonishing, perhaps enabled by the flawless script. Full Review

[The film] provides a great insight into one of the most troubled and contradictory periods of Italian history...

Luchetti deliberately set out to make a film that was not overtly political but rather about people caught up by the tide of the times. Handsomely shot and astutely cast...

Product Description:

Through the 1960s and 1970s, a pair of brothers (Elio Germano and Riccardo Scamarcio) battle over love and ideas in this Italian drama. MY BROTHER IS AN ONLY CHILD (MIO FRATELLO È FIGLIO UNICO) also stars Angela Finocchiaro and Luca Zingaretti.

Description by Image Entertainment:

The violent political unrest of 1960s Italy brings simmering tensions between two feuding brothers to the boiling point in this critically acclaimed film. Eager to distance themselves from each other, Accio (Elio Germano, Do You Like Hitchock', Respiro: Grazia's Island) and older brother, Manrico (Riccardo Scamarcio, Romanzo Criminale, Three Steps Over Heaven), join opposing political parties but are tied together by their dysfunctional working-class family... and a beautiful girl named Francesca. As the turbulent decade comes to a close, the brothers slowly discover they're more alike than they thought, but that realization might come too late.
