Movie Info

When Nénette's mother dies, she seeks out her estranged father with her pet turtle in tow. Instead of her father, however, she finds her uptight, pharmacist half-brother Paul who does not want the intellectually disabled Nénette messing up his perfectly controlled life. But what if Paul needs a little less control and a lot more love?

Bouncing from one ridiculous scene to another - see Nénette stumble into a rave, flood a hotel room and repair Paul's relationship with his estranged son! - this sickly sweet concoction sets your teeth on edge.

Sweet but silly, Demi-Soeur leaves plot strands flapping as it romps to a hasty conclusion.

In the end, you've got to have a heart harder than a tortoise shell not get a little misty.

Shot with a high-def flatness that makes it look like a TV movie, the film indulges in much wannabe-funny wailing, shrieking, and flopping about by Nénette and Paul, only to then lace its buffoonish material with semi-serious undercurrents ...

Part Chaplin, part Fellini's La Strada. And a lunatic but respectful adventure of a mentally challenged woman, navigating the far from normal world around her. In a film about failing to see or acknowledge the disabled, and how they enrich our world.

Demi-Soeur has so clean and clear an arc that it takes no imagination to see where it's all going. But so what? Nice is nice for a change.

A poignant parable which puts what matters most in proper perspective.
