The Brothers Bloom

Comedy Adventure Drama Romance


 

The Brothers Bloom are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue.

"The Brothers Bloom" is an offbeat, eccentric story. The unique approach to story-telling is utterly refreshing as it blends moments of genuine romance, intrigue and comedy which are complemented by a superb, mostly orchestral score. At times it becomes a little self-aware, but for the most part is buoyed by host of glorious performances that sustain an engagingly quirky and whimsical style. A pleasantly charming film that blooms then blossoms.
