Close Enemies (Frères Ennemis)

Directed by David Oelhoffen

  • France 2018; 111 min
  • Original version: French
  • Genre: Drama


Born and raised in a suburb ridden by drug trafficking, Manuel and Driss were like brothers. As adults, they have gone down exactly the opposite path: Manuel chose to embrace this thug life, while Driss completely rejected it and became a cop. When Manuel’s biggest deal goes terribly wrong, the two men meet again and come to realise they both need each other to survive in their worlds. Between betrayals and resentments, and despite their hatred, they renew deep ties around the one thing they have left in common: their visceral commitment to the place of their childhood.
