Simon (Kacey Mottet Klein), a 12-year-old thief operating at the snowy peaks of a swish Alpine ski resort, lives a motley life in the valley below with his irresponsible older sister Louise (Léa Seydoux). Ursula Meier brings a Dardennes-like empathy to their affecting story. "Evoking a lost childhood with bittersweet intent, Sister bears the mark of a filmmaker with supreme control over her material."—Indiewire. Special Mention, Berlin Competition 2012.
