Too Late!

Join us for this UK & Ireland Premiere.

When a boisterously moving, universally relatable comedy can emerge from an embattled nation embroiled in the harshest of conflicts, it feels like a shaft of sunlight breaking through the gloom.

So it is with Antonio Lukich's delightful second film which follows twin brothers, winningly played by rappers-turned-actors Amil and Ramil Nasirov, opposites in temperament and lifestyle, discovering precious common ground when they hear their long-estranged gangster father is dying in Luxembourg.

Deftly examining the bonds of brotherhood and the myths we build around absent parents, the vastly entertaining Luxembourg, Luxembourg is never so light-hearted that it loses its melancholic wisdom, but also never so weighty that it forgets to be funny. It's a joyful discovery of an irrepressible filmmaking talent in Lukich, and a perspective on Ukrainian cinema that feels like a breath of fresh air.

Director Antonio Lukich will be joining us.

Ukraine Encounters is part of the UK/Ukraine Season of Culture devised jointly by the British Council and the Ukrainian Institute
