Dearest Sister is a sad, beautiful film, while simultaneously a masterful yet shattering ghost story.

If the film seems to ride on the archetypal perception of female fury and suspicion, the two actresses, Vilouna and Amphaiphun, make it real and convincing -- something we didn't expect from what's at heart a horror film.

A superb slow-burn supernatural thriller that's as much a portrait of contemporary Lao class differences, as it is an effectively spooky domestic chiller.

Directed by Lao filmmaker Mattie Do, Dearest Sister achieves a difficult feat: It's an insightful look at the impact of colonialism and unbalanced gender roles in Laos, and it's also a gripping and accessible horror story.
