Synopsis

An astute observation based on real cases of bullying. In central Gothenburg, Sweden, a group of boys, aged 12-14, robbed other children on about 40 occasions between 2006 and 2008. The thieves used an elaborate scheme called the 'little brother number' or 'brother trick', involving advanced role-play and gang rhetoric rather than physical violence. Play is elegantly shot - entirely filmed in static shots using a Red 4K camera - and while languid at times, it is punctuated by unlikely moments of humour. An award winner at Festivals from Tokyo to Tromso.

Thanks to Soda Pictures.
