Three brothers each face a crucial turning point in their lives. As each young brother wrestles with their transition to manhood, they must escape the tyrannical rule of their distant father in order to find their own path for success in their lives. A tragic incident, however, sparks a course of events that will test each sibling's sense of self-worth and open up questions about their blossoming desires that could affect their already fragile identities.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A luscious yet ultimately empty film."
‑ Neva Chonin, San Francisco Chronicle
"It seems to take place in a vacuum, a dreamlike world of shirtless, well-muscled boys and darkly moody interiors."
‑ Dana Stevens, New York Times
"Rumble Fish as directed by FranÁois Ozon."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Earthy, tough and very masculine ... although it never quite comes together in a meaningful way"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Although graceful and dynamic, Three Dancing Slaves is none too substantial or original."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"This lulling, banal, and rather pleasant film cultivates a mood of zone-out voyeurism."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"Imagine a Jean Daniel Cadinot porn without the explicit sex...and chances are you have a pretty good idea of what sitting through this drama from Gael Morel is like."
‑ Randy Shulman, Metro Weekly (Washington, DC)
"Darkly rich in character and mood, provocative in intent...but ultimately foiled by inattention to its own story."
‑ Gabriel Shanks, Mixed Reviews
"[The film] is most successful if viewed as a glossy video-log of a men's trendy lifestyle photo shoot."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"this France is full-frontal."
‑ Don Willmott,
"Morel[...]will shamelessly go anywhere to elicit intense viewer response."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A loving, photographic study of beautiful, bored, alienated masculinity."
‑ Jonathan Trout,
