Sylvain Labrosse’s feature film, supported by the Breizh Film Fund, will be shot in April in Brittany

April 2017 will see the start of the shoot for Frères d’arme (“Brothers in Arms”), Sylvain Labrosse first feature film.

Frères d’arme, is the story of Emil and his brother, Stanko, who have something in common: they both remember a terrible event that happened when they were children in Montenegro. Both are now immigrants in France: Emil moves in with his friend Gabrielle, while Stanko attempts to climb the ladder on the fringes of lawfulness, in the world of gambling and cock fighting. Anna, their mother, who has never forgotten her home country, dreams of going back to Montenegro as a family. The arrival of Larkos, their uncle, who has finally been released from prison and is over the moon to be reunited with his first love, will catalyse events and the inevitable confrontation…

Having turned heads with his short films La Fosse rouge (national competition at Clermont-Ferrand) and Virage Nord (Directors’ Fortnight), Sylvain Labrosse will have in his cast for his feature the half-brothers Vincent Rottiers et Kevin Azaïs (photo), for the first time together on the screen.

Frères d’arme is produced by Céline Maugis for La Vie est Belle and Christophe Delsaux for Oriflamme Films. It also sees the involvement of Miroslav Mogorovic for Serbian outfit Art and Popcorn and Ivan Djurovic for Montenegrin company Artikulacija Film. Co-produced by Olivier Bourbeillon for Paris-Brest Productions, supported by the Breizh Film Fund, the feature is also supported by the Brittany and Pays de la Loire regions, and Media Development.
