My Little Sister (2020)

  • Drama, Feature
  • 1h 39m

Lisa (Nina Hoss) is a brilliant playwright who no longer writes. She lives in Switzerland with her husband and children, but her heart - and, it seems, her creative spirit - remains in Berlin with her twin brother, Sven (Lars Eidinger). The ties between the two grow stronger when Sven, a famous stage actor, is diagnosed with an aggressive type of leukemia. Lisa refuses to accept his prognosis and does all she can to ensure he keeps acting, knowing his work is the key to helping him fight his illness. When Sven’s condition worsens, Lisa brings him to Switzerland to stay with her and her family - neglecting everything else in her own life, including 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…

The second feature film from filmmaking duo Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond, My Little Sister was Switzerland’s official submission to the 2021 Academy Awards for Best International Feature. A powerful reflection on the inimitable power of art and how deeply it can be connected to both places and people.
