When darkness falls over the Danube: Brüder der Nacht submerges in the reality of life of Bulgarian Roma who work as male hustlers in Vienna. At unreal, stylized “non-places,” Patric Chiha offers his protagonists a stage where they can play the gangster or seducer, where they exaggerate, staging their stories and themselves. A ruthless, dreamy, and aestheticized film that celebrates its heroes in all of their beauty.
