Synopsis by Mark Deming
A young boy suddenly gets the sort of sibling he's always wanted in this comedy-drama for children. Ten-year-old Anton (Lucas Odin Clorius) is a target for bullies and wishes his big brother could stand up for him. However, teenaged Buller (Viktor Kruse Palshoj) is mildly autistic; he has trouble communicating with others and is extremely uncomfortable around strangers. It doesn't help that Anton and Buller are bring raised by a single mother (Anette Stovelbaek) who is often short on time and money. One day, Anton sees what looks like a star crashing to Earth; he and Buller investigate and discover a cache of gadgets from another world. Among the items is a ray gun that not only cures Buller's autism, but turns him into a superhero who can fly and has superhuman strength. But how will Buller's new powers change his relationship with Anton? SuperBror (aka SuperBrother) was an official selection at the 2010 BFI London Film Festival.
