Dinner With My Sisters
dir. Michael Hapeshis
Cyprus, 2012, 85 minutes
Greek and English, with English sub-titles
Sisters is a contemporary psychological drama of a Greek-Cypriot family in crisis. Dr Andrew Michael is lost in the anonymity of London medical life. His desire to return to the parental home after 30 years is triggered by a letter sent by his father a few days before he died. When Andrew is back in Cyprus he lodges in the family home where he is joined by his three sisters. Old issues and tensions are revived as he slowly becomes aware that he is not welcome. When he embarks on a journey to discover how his father died, his sisters grow even more estranged.
