Film details

If you knew where it would end, would you ever begin?

Split into two halves, Brakes follows the tumultuous stories of nine couples, plunging straight into the brutal and absurd endings of their relationships before travelling back in time to the moment when the spark of love between them first emerged. Shot in a loose, improvisatory style, the film features an array of contemporary British comedy talent.
