Sister My Sister

R 1h 29m 1994


Two sisters separated in childhood reunite years later as servants at a household in France. Their happiness to be reunited spirals into an incestuous relationship.

This all-woman production is set in provincial France in the early 1930s. Two young, country sisters enter domestic service in the bourgeois household of a penurious widow and her homely daughter. Neither pair speaks to the other: two sets of women separated and confined by social convention, personality, and the house itself. The relationship of the sisters slowly evolves into obsession, brought about by isolation and by emotions left from childhood. Trapped in a garret room, the sisters' violent downstairs-upstairs collision with Madame Danzard (Dame Julie Walters) and the lumpy Isabelle Danzard (Sophie Thursfield) seems certain. Written by
