Brilliant playwright, Lisa, no longer writes. She lives in Switzerland with her family but her heart has stayed in Berlin, beating to the rhythm of her brother's heart. The ties between the twins have grown stronger since Sven was diagnosed with an aggressive type of leukemia. He's a famous theater actor and Lisa refuses to accept his fate, moving heaven and earth to get him back on stage. She gives her all for her soul mate, neglecting everything else, even risking her marriage. Her relationship with her husband starts to fall apart, but Lisa only has eyes for her brother, her mirror, who connects her back with her deepest aspirations and rekindles her desire to create, to feel alive...

  • This is another intimate, personal tale from writer-director duo Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond... and boasts standout scenes and characters you believe in, for all their flaws. It is also moving without being mawkish.

    February 9, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It's a bracing trip, a work of daredevil nerve that serves as its own reward.

    January 19, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's emotionally powerful and not fussy... It doesn't really go in any direction that audiences expect.

    January 16, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The quiet wonder of My Little Sister, Switzerland's Oscar entry, is its cumulative effect... Every moment strengthens the essence of the drama -- the bond of love between two people who came out of their mother's womb within seconds of one another.

    January 14, 2021 | Full Review…
  • With a distinctive angle and the rawness of the cast's first-rate performances, Chuat and Reymond elevate a premise that could have, in other hands, veered into the realm of the uninspired.

    January 14, 2021 | Full Review…
  • "My Little Sister," a tender domestic drama from the Swiss writers and directors Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond, faces terminal illness with a refreshing emotional candor.
