FIVE BROTHERS (COMME LES CINQ DOIGTS DE LA MAIN), Director Alexandre Arcady, France, 2010, 117 Minutes, Fiction, 35mm. A handsome young man speeding his Audi around mountainous curves overlooking the Mediterranean; a single cufflink; a leather bag filled with bills. Four brothers in Paris gather every Shabbat for dinner at their widowed mother’s home. What’s the link? Director Alexandre Arcady jumps from Marseille to Paris before we can connect the dots, as the fifth brother, long estranged from his family, breaks out of prison and flees the mob. Stars in this fast-paced thriller include Patrick Bruel, Vincent Elbaz, Eric Caravaca, Françoise Fabian, and Michel Aumont. In French with subtitles.
