1h 33min. 2004

Pragmatic and sensible elder sister Martine (Isabelle Huppert) has consciously worked to shed her provinciality and cultivate an air of sophistication in Paris while the fanciful and quirky Louise (Catherine Frot) remained in Province to lead a humble life as a beautician and aspiring writer. When Louise comes to stay in Paris, however, it is clear Martine’s seemingly comfortable, lush life is also far from ideal. Trapped in a passionless marriage and bound by social restraints, Martine has become increasingly exacting and hardened to the people around her, and invariably, Louise’s unpolished manners, idiosyncrasies, and interminably bubbly personality quickly begin to fray her carefully cultivated social decorum. Alexandra Leclere’s film is a charming and effervescent comedy on manners, sibling rivalry, and the unbreakable bonds of family.Cast includes: Isabelle Huppert, Catherine Frot.
