Sister (L'Enfant d'en Haut) (15)
Dir: Ursula Meier France/Switzerland 2012
1hr 37mins French with subtitles
Cast: Kacey Mottet Klein, Léa Seydoux, Gillian Anderson
High up in the Alps, 12-year-old Simon is hard at work using his ski pass to steal goods from rich tourists in the resorts. Living in a run-down tower block at the foot of the mountains, he sells the loot in order to support himself and his older sister Louise who aimlessly skips from job to job, boyfriend to boyfriend. Meier’s confident direction plus some beautiful cinematography vividly portray the characters. Klein (who starred in Meier’s previous film ‘Home’) gives an incredibly empathetic performance as Simon.
