Nina Hoss Stars in the Affecting Drama, MY LITTLE SISTER, Switzerland’s Official Oscar Entry, Opening in Virtual Cinema on 1/15 – Movie News

“Superb performances by Nina Hoss and Lars Eidinger ground this moving, unfussy Swiss drama of twin siblings whose bond is tested by leukemia. This is bright, unaffected naturalism with a fluidly roving camera, but also a generous regard for its ensemble, as befits a film affectionately embedded in the Berlin theater scene. Chuat and Reymond’s direction is delicate and unobtrusive,in tune with their calmly deep-digging actors. “
— Guy Lodge, Variety
“Chuat and Reymond take their time unspooling a graceful drama that twists the tear-soaked conventions of the cancer drama into something raw and satisfying.”
— Kate Erbland, IndieWire
“My Little Sister is an affecting, emotionally truthful experience…
[Nina Hoss] delivers a raw, compelling, performance”
— Lee Marshall, Screen Daily
” Intensely emotional…My Little Sister serves as yet another vehicle for the
great Nina Hoss to demonstrate just how talented an actress she truly is.”
— Wilson Kwong, Film Inquiry
“This is a quietly stunning film that strikes chords of emotional truth,
lingering long after viewing.”
— Josephina A., One Room with a View
A once successful playwright sacrifices her life and career for her dying brother in MY LITTLE SISTER, a poignant, affecting drama from writer-directors Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond, nominated for the Golden Bear and Teddy Awards at the 2020 Berlinale. Lisa (Nina Hoss, Phoenix, The Most Wanted Man), once a brilliant playwright, no longer writes. She lives with her family in Switzerland, but her heart remains in Berlin, beating in time with that of her twin brother Sven (Lars Eidinger, Proxima, Never Look Away), the famous theatre actor. Since Sven has been suffering from an aggressive type of leukemia, the relationship between them has become even closer. Lisa does not want to accept this blow of fate, and she does everything in her power to bring Sven back on stage.  Her relationship with her husband starts to fall apart, but Lisa only has eyes for her brother, her mirror, who connects her back with her deepest aspirations and rekindles her desire to create, to feel alive again.
