Mistaken for Strangers follows The National on its biggest tour to date. Newbie roadie Tom (lead singer Matt Berninger’s younger brother) is a heavy metal and horror movie enthusiast, and can't help but put his own spin on the experience. Inevitably, Tom’s moonlighting as an irreverent documentarian creates some drama for the band on the road. The film is a hilarious and touching look at two very different brothers, and an entertaining story of artistic aspiration.

Tiene que ser dificil cuando eres el hermano desastre del hombre más guapo y con la voz más sensual del mundo y que además ha triunfado con la banda más cool del momento; y lo tuyo en cambio es un quiwero-pero-no-se-si-puedo. Por eso esta película es tanto un documental sobre la gira de "The National" como una muestra de amor-rivalidad fraternal por ambas partes y una confesión pública de los errores propios. Interesantísima de cualquier modo.

This is a wonderful film. I would recommend this to anybody, not just National fans. It's witty, it's heartwarming, beautifully done and just wonderful to watch. I felt so happy when I finished watching it last night, it just made me feel good about myself and about everything else.

Superbly done.
