Storyline

Alda, her sister Olga, and the latter's daughter Sigga live together in an old house facing a cemetery by the sea. Self-assured Alda collects men; Olga shuns them, but cannot help following the activities of Alda (who receives her lovers in the sisters' house) with some envy. In their own way, both women refuse any emotional ties with other people, while keeping a strange attachment to their family's past, their deceased parents, and a third, deceased, sister. Will they, and will Sigga, be able to escape that environment imbued by the presence of death and find their way to a true life ? Written by Eduardo Casais <eduardo.casais@nokia.com>

so slow
22 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie is really boring. Everything is so slow, dark, depressing. The family in itself could be interesting: 3 totally different women living under the same roof. The two sisters are both self destructive in their own way. This story might have been in great book, but the movie isn't. The acting isn't even very good - Bonnaire and Beart are far from being at their best! Go only if you like Ouessant's wild landscapes...
