Additional Information

A masterful debut from one of England's boldest and brightest new talents, MY BROTHER THE DEVIL stars James Floyd as Rashid, a young man from a traditional Arab family who runs with a gang that rules the streets of Hackney. Rashid's younger brother, Mo, idolizes his handsome, charismatic older brother and dreams of following in his footsteps, but Rashid envisions a different life for Mo and insists that he stay away from gang life and stick to his studies. Headed on a collision course of conflicting desires, each young man is forced to face himself and confront the brother he thought he knew.

I saw this movie a few months ago in May at the E Street Landmark Theatre in Washington DC, and now notice that Amazon has it finally listed as a future DVD release.

"My Brother The Devil" (2012 release from the UK; 110 min.) brings the story of two teenager brothers living in the socially and racially diverse (and charged) neighborhood of Hackney, London. The younger brother Mo (played by Fady Elsayed) worships his older brother Rashid (played by James Floyd). Rashid is a member of a teenage gang called DMG (which stands for "drugs, money, guns"). Rashid does not want Mo to follow in his footsteps and instead is mapping out a better life for his younger brother. In the first half, we see Rashid making drug deliveries in and around the neighborhood, and at some point becoming involved in a fight with a rival gang, leading to tragic results. Then there is yet another significant turn in the movie involving Rashid, which I did not see coming at all and I will not reveal as it... Read more
This tells the story of two brothers Mo, the younger and Rashid (James Floyd who played Freddie Mercury in the TV biopic of Kenny Everett) they are both British but from Egyptian parents. As such they have been drawn to the local gangs that deal in drugs and guns and violence. They live in Hackney which has one of the most cluttered number of gangs any where in the UK like `London Fields', `Hoxton Boys' and `Legends of Stokie' to name but three. Kids actually come from outside the borough to take part in the real inter gang rivalry.

In the film the gang is a mixed bunch who call them selves `DMG' which is a code for `drugs, money and guns', that will fool the `Feds' guys!. They have full on youth swagger and macho lame sensibilities. Then Mo gets a bit too involved and Rashid wants to get out, but in between ignoring his girlfriend showing disrespect to his erstwhile `homies', he also develops a taste for more than what the gang has to offer, or will ever accept. Everything... Read more
I enjoyed this a lot; there's not a great deal of gayness in the film, as I was expecting, but the story itself is a very intriguing one. Never having lived in London, I don't know what the gangs there are like but if they're no different than the ones portrayed in this film, I'd say they were pretty horrifying. You can smell the cigarette smoke and the expensive cologne on the 'DGM' guys. The characters are all tangible and completely believable, usually interesting, and likeable. The black muslim gal who plays Mo's "eye apple" is such a sweetheart and lord only knows why she's hanging around him; she's kinda angelic. Rashid, despite bad choices in the past, has a head on his shoulders and a brain in his head and now that he's discovered himself, he'll do well in life. Mo is not that interesting a character but it's not hard to empathize with him and your heart may even go out to him. My favorite character is Said the photographer - he's done well in life but he's lonely... Read more
