Your sister can't twist but she can rock and roll.
A remake of an American movie ("Your sister's sister")I have not seen ,and probably never will .
"Et Ta Soeur" gets off to a most auspicious start.Pierrick has just lost his brother ,and opinions differ : some sing the praises of the late boy whereas his sibling gives a warts and all depiction ,although he certainly misses him :a brother is someone unique you cannot replace and it's certainly a thing the future librarian is aware of.
Unfortunately ,the starting point is quickly forgotten (there's no hint at the loss afterward) and the poor screenplay is little more than a second-rate sitcom;the twists are worthy of the Theatre De boulevard , but these plays were at least funny whereas "Et Ta Soeur " is talky ,boring,full of navel-gazing and smugness which will remind you of the worst aspects of the New Wavelet "deep" "important" "works" .
This film takes no chances,raises no questions (lesbianism is no longer taboo,and anyway ,sixty years ago,woman director Jacqueline Audry hinted at it,organic food is hackneyed) ,does not charm or appeal (if the condom trick makes you laugh ,much good may it do to you!)
Filmed on location in Brittany ;so the actors can combine business with pleasure.
Nb :" Et Ta Soeur" is a slang expression which means "get lost"
