Brother (Russian: Брат, translit. Brat) is a 1997 Russian crime film directed by Aleksei Balabanov and starring Sergei Bodrov, Jr. The film also stars Viktor Sukhorukov, Svetlana Pismichenko and Yuriy Kuznetsov.

Plot: The film begins when Danila Bagrov (Bodrov), a former conscript after demobilisation, travels to St. Petersburg to seek out his older brother Viktor, who his mother is confident will help him make a living. His brother, Viktor (criminal nickname Tatarin), is an accomplished hitman who himself is growing too independent for his role and irritating his mob boss Krugly (literally: "Round"). So when the Krugly hires Viktor to assassinate a Chechen mafia boss, Viktor offers the job to Danila.
Although he claims that his Army service was spent at headquarters as a clerk, Danila carries the task out professionally. However, Krugly's hitmen who have been sent to take out Viktor upon completion follow Danila and injure him as he flees the scene in a cargo tram. After helping him, the driver of the tram, Sveta, who is married to an abusive husband, pursues an affair with Danila.
Simultaneously, Danila befriends several people from a very wide urban spectrum: Kat, an energetic drug addict, and Nemets (literally "German") Hoffman who is a kind homeless man, whom Danila saves from a racketeer and later helps to find a home and treats him when injured.
After the first job, Viktor once again offers Danila a new one that he must carry out with two of Krugly's hitmen. Upon raiding the apartment, it turns out their main target is away and as they wait first a guest to a party a floor above becomes a hostage, and the famous Rock music star Vyacheslav Butusov (who plays himself), of whom Danila is very fond almost ends in a similar situation. Afterwards Danila decides to save the radio director, Butusov's friend and kills the two assassins after they kill another hostage. Once again Nemets helps Danila.
By this time Krugly becomes frustrated that all his jobs with Tatarin end in his men being killed. So instead he raids Viktor's home who gives the details of his brother. Danila is first unsuccessfully ambushed near his home by a Krot (literally Mole), after that fails Krugly raids Sveta's communal apartment and his men assault and rape her. Upon returning and seeing Sveta's face Danila becomes enraged after realizing that it was not her husband but his assassins that are responsible.
