The Andersson Brothers

Bröderna Andersson

26th TIDF: International Premiere
The Andersson brothers grew up in a working- class home in Gothenburg. Roy became an internationally acclaimed filmmaker while Ronny ended up a homeless man. Kjell became a documentary filmmaker, and Leif lives as a disability pensioner. Johanna Bernhardson makes her feature film debut with a story about how life can turn out so differently despite seemingly similar circumstances. Through the portrayal of her father Leif and her uncles – with alcohol as a common thread – she also tells a tale of inheritance that stretches generations backward (and forward) in time. At the same time, she tries to get the brothers to stop sulking and reunite – before it’s too late. A tender portrayal of four stubborn brothers becomes a touching contemporary Swedish family chronicle about dreams, class, heritage, and how difficult it can be to connect with each other.
