Brüderlein

A Film by Nora Fingscheidt

Synopsis

You really look alike! Especially nose and mouth.“  This is all Teresa can say about her half-brother Ruben and her recently deceased father. Without prior notice she is suddenly standing in front of the foreigner’s house, who is living in seclusion on a northern German island and who’s existence she did not know of until lately. Repressing the memory of her bereavement she stumbles into an unfamiliar life among fish sandwiches, yellowed bowling alleys and mysterious brent geese.
