(James Floyd) in My Brother the Devil
First, a couple of cautions. The dialogue is in English with a little bit of Arabic, with no subtitles. American audiences may find the heavy accent challenging in a few scenes, although fans of British television should be able to muddle through, or hopefully have the option to turn on subtitles on the DVD. Second, there is some graphic violence, although less than you might expect from a story involving gangs. With that said, though, My Brother the Devil is an engaging coming-of-age tale, well told, with fine performances by all the principal cast. It’s also a very different side of London from the usual West End fare. Highly recommended.
