Movie Info

A young teenager grappling with adulthood and a defective relationship with her mother turns to her sister for support in this {drama} from director Mijke de Jong. Lucia (Betty Qizmolli) is a thirteen-year-old girl whose family left Russia for the Netherlands several years ago. The adjustment has been hard for Lucia, and the only person she seems able to relate to is her older sister Katia (Julia Seijkens), who is pretty and confident while Lucia seems plain and withdrawn by comparison. Lucia's mother (Olga Louzgina) is a harsh and often angry woman who earns her living as a prostitute; Katia seems destined to follow her mom into the life, and her grandmother (Tatiana Sharkova) is gradually slipping into senility. Lucia is emotionally dependent on her big sister, but Katia isn't always interested in having her around, often preferring the company of her boyfriend (Chico Kenzari). Eventually, mother abandons her daughters and moves in with her latest boyfriend, and after Katia's beau leaves her, she and Lucia are forced to fend for themselves. Adapted from a novel by Andres Barba, Het Zusje van Katia (aka Katia's Sister) was an official selection at the 2008 Toronto World Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore
