Every year, the two bearded brothers Wolfgang and Günther sail along the picturesque canals of Friesland and discuss family relationships, poetry and philosophy. Director Valentin Scholz, son of Wolfgang, initially wanted to shoot a cushy travel documentary when he joined them on board for 10 days as a silent observer. But when the two brothers discuss poetry, things can get heated. OLDER BROTHERS is "a powerful film about the relationship between two brothers who tell a lot about themselves and their generation as they search for each other." (general-anzeiger-bonn.de)
