Synopsis

A luxury ski resort in Switzerland. 12-year-old Simon lives in the industrial valley below, with his jobless sister. Every day, he takes the ski-lift to the opulent ski world above, stealing equipment from the rich tourists to resell to the local kids back down.

Our take

Ursula Meier’s Sister is a film with secrets–a film that quietly yet fiercely challenges the ‘family institution’ by pushing the boundaries of on-screen filial relationships. An acute look at loneliness, dependance and denial, with remarkable cinematography by Agnès Godard.
