Don’t be a dick about it

Don’t be a dick about it
Ben Mullinkosson / 2018, USA, 69 min

A hilarious and beautiful portrait of two brothers growing up.

Two red-headed brothers are crazy about each other, but they’re also constantly at each other’s throats. Matthew loves sports and physical activity, but is afraid of dogs. Peter’s favourite activity is watching Survivor and eating doughnuts. What are the challenges of growing up with a totally different person with whom your only connection is sharing the same parents? Over the course of a year, the film follows the brothers’ quarrels and skirmishes, culminating in Peter’s birthday party, which is naturally inspired by his favourite reality TV show “The tribe has spoken,” followed by a long silence between the brothers. A funny documentary full of wilful acts of sibling rivalry, mutual understanding and brotherly love.
