Adam looks back, with affection, to his childhood in a small suburban house, with his mum, his crippled and alcoholic dad, their bird Jeanette, and his older brother, who wears an eye patch, has asthma, and gets blamed for things even when he's not around. The boys are boon companions, swiping money from their napping dad and heading for Ruby's store to buy lollies. They draw, collect cans, and watch the brother's pet lizard eat flies (occasionally giving it a snail). (imdb.com)

This one by Elliot is especially touching.

Most of Elliot's shorts seem to me like sketches for Mary and Max, and too similar to each other. Brother kind of stands out, I think. It's a little bit better than the rest, at least until the mandatory Elliotian ending which kind of spoiled it for me.

Another very good claymated short from Elliot, this one is pretty similar to Cousin, but, for obvious reasons, it feels more personal. The quirky characteristics are more replaced with realistic ones than in the other shorts, making this a terrific recollection of a childhood spent on mischief drenched in suburban oddity. Like Uncle, has a dramatic ending that's a bit too much.

Claymation, but not very animated. The cartoonish style is appealing, but otherwise it's dull and dry.
