I'm a big fan of the style of Robert Eggers' filmmaking. I love the Witch and I love The Lighthouse even more. This short film was made because Robert Eggers had a difficult time getting financed to make his debut feature film, The Witch. So, he made this short film to show his skills and abilities.
Robert Eggers has a very distinct style and you can even see it in this earlier short film. And his films always deliver an emotional blow by the end.
Man, Eggers really knows how to make you feel the dread of unfortunate situations. Atmosphere is something he definitely seems to focus on, and has honestly mastered it with only 2 feature films under his belt. If I were to ever make a short this good, it would be the project I put at the top portion of my portfolio.
Here's the link to watch, incase you can't find it anywhere.
I love Robert Eggers. I love the VVitch. I told everyone about the VVitch when it came out. I love spelling The VVITCH with 2 Vs just to be annoying.
I also love The Lighthouse.
But, to me, this short film isn't it. Very slight and not nearly as imaginative as his later work. It felt like a minor student film and even the cuts on the violence felt cheap. The absolute most impressive part of this is he was able to use this to finance The VVitch. And for that at least I'm grateful
I didn't mean to.
Exactly what I thought it was going to be: A decent short that's Robert Eggers going "Look at me, I'm a good director and I can instill atmosphere and dread into anyone who dares watch something made by me. Let me make a feature!" It's shot well, the performances are serviceable, the pacing works for a short, and I like the use of the woods and familial tension that would later be revisited in The Witch. Not too much else to say about it, if you read the logline for this on Letterboxd and you like Eggers, then you already know what this is going to be like, and you can decide if you want to watch it not. (I really shouldn't already want to rewatch The Lighthouse sometime soon, but I mean... You know.)
The world needs more Robert Eggers projects.
robert eggers, who hurt you
robert eggers film making is so pleasing to me.
Little cry baby bitch..
Beyond pleased to have finally found this early gem from Robert Eggers. Really interesting adaptation of the biblical Cain and Abel story.
As for what short films I have seen, this is peak. There’s just something about his appreciation and approach to darkness, folktales, religion and the occult that speaks levels to me. Brothers is no exception to his attentive grasp on how horror when presented as extreme anxiety, sustains tension more than any jump scare ever could.
Let me not forget to give credit to his frequent collaborator in cinematographer, Jarin Blaschke. Gorgeously shot is an understatement.
No wonder The VVitch is a classic.
Clear practice for The Witch

Cute little story about brother nature.
What a legend Robert Eggers is...

Every Robert Edgards movie seems to be the same font and style? It's like each film is the same plot just copied and pasted, but altered slightly.

the most color i’ve seen in a Robert Eggers movie, all while it maintains the tone and visual style of his other films. these are the short films i love to see !
those 11 minutes felt like hours
Robert eggers, the question we should be asking is, are you okay?
He even had the font down way back when!
Interesting shit and nice to look at but the (child) acting was baaad. Glad he got this one out of his system before making some of my favorite films.
