Review
Directionless demobbed Danila drifts to St Petersberg on the heels of his elder brother, a hitman for the local mafia, to whom he becomes apprenticed. No mug with a gun Danila drifts between the dossers who live on the edge of society, the drug consuming youngsters on the rock scene, a woman he sleeps with and the hoodlums he works for. Brother is a gritty urban thriller and an acute observation of the grim reality that faces many young Russians in a nation ill at ease with capitalism.
