Aus den Aen / Long Lost

Short Film / Luxembourg / 22 min

:: Synopsis

Pol, 30, lives with his girlfriend Julie. A few days before Christmas, his unknown half-brother Jerome turns up. Jerome, 26, just came back from serving time in prison for a minor offense. He tries to stay out of trouble and wants to establish family ties that may provide him with some balance. The first exchange between the brothers reveals two distinct personalities. While the younger brother is optimistic and spontaneous, Pol is far more reticent and shy, especially when the discussion gets them talking.
