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.
