Critic Reviews for Sisters

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Yamina Benguigui's toneless drama is stifled by poorly rendered flashbacks and an emotional aimlessness despite its deeply personal story.

October 30, 2021 | Full Review…

Benguigui... isn't shy about depicting the emotional turmoil and blurred edges of reliving the past through art.

October 30, 2021 | Full Review…

Despite an intriguing premise there is a vagueness which permeates every creative decision in the film creating a distance that cannot be bridged.

December 10, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Largely autobiographical in scope, Benguigui returns to similar themes with a more complex narrative in her sophomore theatrical feature, Sisters, headlined by an impressive cast led by Isabelle Adjani.
