La Traviata, My Brothers And I

OT: Mes frères et moi

Yohan Manca // France, 2021
Fiction Feature // FF2021



Between high-rise and opera house: this French debut feature blends Italian comedy and French Banlieue drama. Summer holidays in the South of France. 14-year old Nour lives with his three elder brothers on a council estate. The four boys take care of their sick mother. While the other three create the income for rent and medicine, Nour plays her Italian opera. When he accidentally bursts in on a workshop given by opera singer Sarah, a chance opens up for him to pursue his passion for Verdi which his brothers laugh at so readily.
