Directed, written and starring the acclaimed Takeshi Kitano (HANA-BI, SONATINE) and produced by Oscar-winner Jeremy Thomas, BROTHER is a slick mob flick that mixes Tokyo style with Hollywood action. A Japanese Yakuza gangster (Kitano) is exiled to the United States. Fitted with a new identity he moves to Los Angeles to join his brother, who deals drugs with a local gang. With partner-in-crime Denny (Omar Epps), they build the business, leading to a bloody, but surprising conclusion.
