A Brother's Love
La Femme de mon frère
True North | True North
With zero job prospects in sight, over-educated but under-achieving Sophia (Anne-Élisabeth Bossé) retreats to her brother Karim’s (Patrick Hivon) spare room in order to take stock. She regresses instead, engaging in affectionate-if-adolescent antics with her sibling until he unceremoniously falls for another woman. As a jilted Sophia slowly implodes, Monia Chokri unfurls a series of immaculately written and hilariously staged set pieces that deliver an enticing blend of visual humour and physical comedy.
