Fogler and Sexton are directed very well.

What great chemistry these two guys have. This is not like Fogler's or Sexton's other work. Fogler is goofy but has genuine side as well (credit the directors for sure), unlike his other studio films. Sexton is amazing when you consider he is one of the rapist/murderers from Boys Don't Cry.

Its funny, its sad, it goes by fast because of tall the snappy scenes. Everyone is lovable, believable and at the same time a touch nutty. You gotta ask yourself, "Am I one of those people?".

It's a tough world for any comedy without 20M behind it. I hope this one does well.

Sexton and Fogler are a great team -- classic comedy

Laughter filled the Alamo Ritz on Sunday afternoon at the World Premiere of "The Marconi Bros." at the 2008 SXSW Film Festival. This was the first all-out comedy I'd seen since I arrived and it provided a good dose of much-needed levity.

Brendan Sexton III and Dan Fogler are Anthony and Carmine Marconi, brothers in their father's carpet business who, through a series of mishaps and misfortunes, aspire to join the wonderful world of wedding photography. It's a laugh-out-loud thrill ride which wowed the audience and was a refreshing change from the dark material so prevalent at recent festivals.

The strength of "The Marconi Bros." lies in the chemistry between Sexton and Fogler. Much of the film leans towards farce but director Marco Ricci and Michael Canzoniero keep it from straying too far over the line. Ultimately, the audience ends up on a wild thrill ride -- the caper at the heart of the film wandered into my mind's "Pink Panther" territory. So much of the plot is admittedly silly and implausible yet I smiled all the way through to the end credits.

Despite being an indie, "The Marconi Bros." definitely has the look and feel of a Hollywood movie. The use of HDCam is helping to keep the cost of films lower, allowing more resources to be put into areas like lighting, sets, and post-production. In addition, the filmmakers explained in the Q&A afterward that many of the locations, color processing, and other elements important to the look, feel, and sound of the film were donated. The result is a slick, polished work that should appeal to a wide audience.

Funny, sweet, entertaining

Dan Fogler is great in this film, doing his usual wild comedy as well as some nice scenes with his brother Anthony (Sexton). Both Sexton and Fogler are convincing as brothers stuck working in the family business and trying to break away on their own.

Jon Polito is excellent as always, though near the end he gets a bit frantic and crazy. The rest of the supporting cast are great, especially the Irish bathroom attendant who nearly steals the last few scenes.

The film is paced well, and covers a lot of plot in the approximately 85 minutes of running time. No small feat for a low budget film, so the directors should be complimented for putting together a coherent, funny, and entertaining comedy. Hopefully it will get picked up for wider distribution.
