Mistaken for Strangers

Mistaken for Strangers is, like its maker, scruffy, undisciplined and eager to be loved. The big surprise is how easy it is to comply.” (Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times)

Being compared to Anvil: The Story of Anvil and This Is Spinal TapMistaken for Strangersis a very meta music movie about two brothers. Matt, the lead singer of The National, invites his metal-head slacker brother to work for the acclaimed rock band as they set out on their first European tour. What Matt doesn’t know is that Tom is going to film the whole adventure. The result: This hilarious, surprising, and unexpectedly moving documentary.

Tom Berninger. 2013. 75 m. NR. USA. Abramorama.
