Directed by: Ursula Meier Written by:  Antoine Jaccoud, Ursula Meier,  Gilles Taurand Starrring:  Lea Seydoux, Kacey Mottett Klein, Gillian Anderson Sister is the story of the strained relationship between a brother and his older sister. The story slowly inches along with very bland acting from Simon and Louise. Gillian Anderson, playing a tourist, adds a pleasant touch by giving a deeper understanding to Simon and helps you connect with him more. The script starts to pick up somewhere in the middle of film and gives catalyst to a tearful open ending. While the scenic shots of lingering snow and dusty fields versus the luxurious ski resorts further shows the bleakness in Simon and Louise’s lives. The movie as a whole tries too hard to show the fractured relationship of Simon and Louise, which in turns created a very fractured film.

7.5/10
