Filming on Serraille’s sophomore project began in April of 2021 until in the Normandy region and France’s capitol. Produced by Blue Monday Productions’ Sandra da Fonseca, Un petit frère was shot by Hélène Louvart and it stars Annabelle Lengronne, Stéphane Bak, Ahmed Sylla and Kenzo Sambin in a three decade spanning drama in Paris.

Gist: A family chronicle spanning 30 years (1989 to 2010 to be precise). At the end of the 1980s, a woman arrived from Africa and settled in the Paris suburbs with her two sons. From this installation to the present day, construction and deconstruction of an ordinary family.

Release Date/Prediction: This is going premiere at the Cannes Film Festival – an Un Certain Regard repeat, Directors’ Fortnight selection and perhaps the Comp are legit pathways.
