Brotherhood: Gay Neo-Nazi Romance Wins Rome Film Festival


Brotherhood, a Danish film about a gay neo-Nazi romance, has won the Rome Film Festival:

"The winning movie, 'Brotherhood,' takes a hard look at the neo-Nazi group that the leading character, Lars, joins after leaving the army. The group carries out raids on homosexuals, but Lars and his mentor in the group, Jimmy, begin a love affair that they try to keep secret. 'Brotherhood' is the first feature film by Nicolo Donato, a 35-year-old who previously worked as a fashion photographer. The jury handing out the awards was headed by Oscar-winning director Milos Forman."

Watch the trailer, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Well, I'm sure this one's gonna have a happy ending.

    In all seriousness, though, it looks very well-done and intriguing.

  3. Homo Nazis. That aint nothing new. We got them here on Towleroad. Just let Andy post a story about a black homophobe--and here they come: the Homo Nazi Brigade...from the Ernst Roehm School of Gay.

  5. Just what we need... A movie that ties homosexuals with the Nazis. Christ on a crutch! How many of you are gonna drool over the cast too?

    Honestly I'm beginning to think that homosexuality IS internalized homophobia.

  10. No surprise. Euro hipsters are obsessed with homosexuality, Nazis, Fascists, Communism, and gratuitous anti-Americanism.

    BTW: this film mimics numerous real life stories; it really is an example of art imitating life.

  11. Just like there are more than a few black gay and bi rappers on the DL.

  12. It wasn't until the 1:03 mark that I realized they weren't speaking English. How sad is that?

  13. Wow. Goes to show that U can romanticize pretty much anything long as you have the right soundtrack.

  14. I was lucky enough to see this film at the Black Night Film Festival in Tallinn Estonia.

    Incredible film that could have been shot in UK. You know how some uadiences gets up and start walking out when the first credit titles appear - well not here ! They sat till the last of the end titles rolled over the screen. It hits you and it hits you HARD !!

    If you are lucky enough to get a chance to see the film do not miss out on that !

  15. My love for history, Nazism as a topic and the gay community in one film
