Although this film is a far cry from the brothers first film together, that doesn't make an iota of difference for this wonderful film that is entertaining and engaging from the get go. I'm not going to bang on about genre and mood and tone and humour - it's all taken care of with watching the film. Some films you wonder why you sat through it, this one you get to the end without realising the time has passed. A real, gritty, funny and touching film.

Well, this was not only a dark 'comedy' but very much a dark horse. Dark comedy-type movies can be really hit and miss. They can be so stupid you cringe and walk out horrified or they can be utterly disconcertingly clever and engrossing. This movie is the latter.I watched the preview but still had no idea what was in store for me. Nothing fit into my little box of clichés throughout and that was not only completely unsettling but utterly necessary to make this the superb piece of moving making that it is. Did I mention thoroughly unsettling? Sure is and yet, it not only nailed the structure and pathology of far too many families, it took you on a brilliant ride through the minds of people, how they justify their actions, how siblings can divert each other, how families seem to never communicate to the point that... well, this kind of dynamic might occur.
Exceptional acting! Right down to the 'horsey girl'! A small, brilliant cast, nothing overdone, overstated or overacted. If you can't handle dark comedy with unexpected twists and turns then this may unsettle you but if you can, you're in for a real treat!
Shane Jacobson emerged as a seriously reliable performer in film and musical comedy in the last decade here in Australia. Through Kenny, the port-a-loo entrepreneur, the chubby chap that many of us Aussies had enjoyed on the musical stage was brought to broader knowledge.
I may have misunderstood the attractions of 'stars' - not just that their role will be convincing, more that their presence says 'This must be OK or I wouldn't have signed up."
It's somewhat like that with 'Brothers' Nest', but more so. Shane and his real life big brother Clayton have the relationship in this family muck-up story that cannot be acted - it just has to be innate and honed over decades of brotherly rivalry to work this well. The setting, in a western Victorian farmhouse, shot mostly at dusk, overnight and dawn looks the real deal it is.
The story is about family relationships - intense, marginal, commonly held and individual, stemming from not so happy families, divorces, new unions, strengths but mostly weaknesses. It isn't pretty, and if your family isn't like this, you'll probably be thankful, but it really does have a lot to say.
It's a small cast, and the two bothers plus Kim Gyngell as their step father leave little space for the others, but all click satisfyingly. They are all believable in their roles.
The billing was 'black comedy' but I'd allocate this to the thriller category. Few laughs, personally or in our cinema, and virtually none out loud. But it seriously held my attention.
Give it a go - it's good.
