The Trailer For Icelandic Film ‘WINTER BROTHERS’

August 2, 2017

Locarno Film Festival has released the trailer for one of their film by Icelandic filmmaker writer-director Hlynur Pálmason titled WINTER BROTHERS, which can be seen down below!

The film features Elliot Crosset Hove, Simon Sears, Victoria Carmen Sonne and Lars Mikkelsen, which will have its world premiere at the festival’s Main International Competition.

Acquired by Jan Naszewski’s New Europe Film Sales, the film is co-produced by Denmark’s Masterplan Pictures with Iceland’s Join Motion Pictues. It follows two brothers who work at a rural chalk-mining community during a bitter Winter. They initiate a violent blood feud with another family.

Younger brother, Emil, an outsider who distils moonshine, longs to be wanted and loved but sees how his older sibling Johan gets Anna, the local girl who is the subject of his unfulfilled fantasies. Meanwhile, the local community begins to turn on him, suspecting his moonshine of making a fellow worker ill.

Pálmason said:

“Emil is desperate to cling on to someone or something but at the same time he’s alien in the presence of it. I tried to strip him of everything except his very basic instincts.

Maybe this is why he suffers so much. He is the wise idiot and perhaps a bit out of tune with time. “

Julie Waltersdorph Hansen produces. Per Damgaard Hansen executive produces. Anton Mani Svansson co-produces for Join Motion Pictures.
