Watch: Brian and Charles 2022 123movies, Full Movie Online – After a particularly harsh winter Brian goes into a deep depression; completely isolated and with no one to talk to, Brian does what any sane person would do when faced with such a melancholic situation. He builds a robot..
Plot: An endearing outlier, Brian lives alone in a Welsh valley, inventing oddball contraptions that seldom work. After finding a discarded mannequin head, Brian gets an idea. Three days, a washing machine, and sundry spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and proves a charming, cheeky companion. Before long, however, Charles also develops autonomy. Intrigued by the wider world — or whatever lies beyond the cottage where Brian has hidden him away — Charles craves adventure.

David Earl is “Brian”. He lives in a cottage in a rural Welsh location where he regularly turns his hand to inventing. Much like “Caractacus Potts” in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” (1968), his inventions are far fetched, half baked and frankly rather daft. Until, that is, he decides to convert an old washing machine into a robot. Miraculously – probably thanks to a mouse and a terrific thunderstorm – this robot comes alive, decides he wants to be called “Charles” and the two start to bond in a sort of parent to infant fashion. The latter having sped-read a dictionary is curious and inquisitive and determined to explore beyond the bounds of their small holding. “Brian”, however, is much more wary of the reaction of their fellow villagers – a suspicion that is well founded when the local bully “Eddie” (James Michie) espies said creation and decides to procure him for his own daughters. Now it falls to to “Brian” and his parrot-loving friend “Hazel” (Louise Brealey) to rescue “Charles” from quite a grizzly fate. This film takes for ever to get going. Much of it is told as a monologue between “Brian” and the camera that I found missed many more times than it hit. “Charles” does come out with some witty observations that reminded me of the “out of the mouth of babes…” quote and that decent naivety and innocence is engaging for a time, but the joke wears really quite thin and resorts a little to rural stereotyping that didn’t endure well for what felt like much longer than 90 minutes. It’s an amiable enough watch, but perhaps wait til it appears on television in due course.

“Brian and Charles will definitely end up as one of the most endearing, funniest, feel-good stories of the whole year. Jim Archer takes David Earl and Chris Hayward’s original screenplay and uses their extraordinary, amusing performances to bring to life a narrative about true friendship and authentic human connections.
The light humor consistently forces the audience to let go of strong, loud laughs, either through genuinely hilarious interactions between the two protagonists or using physical comedy and brilliant song selection.
It may not be never-seen-before content or as inventive as expected, but it manages to deliver a memorable, entertaining, heartfelt story with beautiful messages.
Brian and Charles — One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure
If you like “Lars and the Real Girl” you’ll love Brian and Charles.
Brian and Charles is a mockumentary about socially awkward hoarder and oddball inventory named Brian who builds a companion robot from a pile of junk.
He names his robot Charles who soon takes on a life of its own becoming more adventurous than his safe creator Brian.
Charles informs himself by reading the dictionary and becomes quite curious about the outside world — the world beyond the borders of Brian’s isolated Welsh quarters.
Charles craves adventure, unlike Brian who wants to live a boring and obscure life — free from heartbreak and danger.
Brian’s an endearing creature who collects junk which he uses to alter household appliances that he claims as new innovations — totally oblivious that these contraptions are made worse.
This is a metaphor for how Brian sees himself and how he presents himself to this phantom documentary crew that’s documenting his mundane life. Brian’s a disheveled hermit, obtuse and discard, like a pile of junk that nobody wants. That’s how Brian sees himself.
So he builds a better Brian from that pile of junk. A robot who’s willing to experience life.
This is a heartwarming story about fear, loneliness and the importance of human connection.
I highly recommend this film.
Short review, If you love Lars and the Real girl, then you will love Brian and Charles.
This is an amazing bromance movie. <3. No need to spoil anything, there will be ups and downs, laughters and tears. And an amazing adventure.
