There are many beautiful places to die. Luxembourg is not one of them. But beautiful or not, Luxembourg makes dying very expensive. When twin brothers hear that their long-absent father is sick in Luxembourg, they set out on a journey to see him one last time. Will the man they find be the bad-ass father they remember?
"My father died in 2016 in a wealthy European city. I didn't know him well, and only saw him a few times in my life. Some say that he was friends with Antonio Banderas, knew Maradona personally, and dressed in Prada. Of course, we want to know only good things about our parents. How painful it is for each of us to admit their failures and instead of Prada to find worn battered sportswear in their closets.
"Luxembourg, Luxembourg" is my declaration of love to my father, who was running away all the time. Whom I've been trying to catch up with for so long, hoping to answer my own question - why are we so drawn to those who constantly run away from us?"
“Antonio Lukich’s second feature is a boisterous, bittersweet saga about twin brothers…deftly poised between jocularity and heart-ache…There is a Scorsese-like snap and swagger to the prologue. Snaking, fast-flowing camerawork boosts the energy level…Strong international interest should follow the high-profile launch of Venice and Toronto premieres….”"Screen International
"Best new discovery (of Venice)The Guardian (Jonathan Romney)
Luxembourg, Luxembourg, a gentle, goofy but caustic comedy about identical twins hitting the road, by Ukrainian director-to-watch Antonio Lukich".
"Lukich makes sure the audience is [having fun], keeping “Luxembourg, Luxembourg” running at a snappy clip with some particularly wily cinematography from Misha Lubarsky where the right zoom or angle really brings a punchline home."Moveable Feast
"Luckich's love of silent comedy is everywhere".Eye For Film
"...Lukich is smart enough to go against the grain…the simplicity of boyhood is captured in the dynamic, vibrant energy of the way these brothers move through the world…CINEMASCOPE
