Nominated for a total of 6 AFI Awards including; Best Film; Best Direction; Best Original Screenplay; Best Cinematography; Best Production Design and Best Costume Design, Love's Brother has been acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.
In a small rural town in '50s Australia, two Italian brothers work hard to build a new life in this young country. In southern Italy, a young woman is about to travel 12,000 miles to escape the poverty of her tiny village and marry one of the brothers, based only on a letter and a photograph he has sent her. The question is - which brother?
This poignant story of brotherly love unfolds against the backdrop of Il Café Latino, touching the lives of everyone there. At the heart of the story are Rosetta, Angelo and Gino, who struggle to resolve this awkward imbroglio without hurting one another's feelings. In the end, all it takes is the power of love and a little bit of magic to make them realise that fate always has its way
From Australian writer/director Jan Sardi (Oscar-nominated for Shine) comes this gentle romantic fable about love and destiny. Working with a stellar international cast and crew, including The Lord of The Rings cinematographer Andrew Lesnie and Shakespeare In Love composer Stephen Warbeck, Sardi has crafted a touching, magical film "that will win you over with its charm and flair...comparable to the great Italian romance films like Moonstruck, Il Postino and Cinema Paradiso."
