Good but not exactly Oscar worthy
25 December 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about three sisters who has to stop their gay brother from marrying a woman.

"Zus & Zo" has many main characters, and hence I was rather confused with who is who for the first half of the film. After I was able to recognise who is who, the film gets better. The plot is more about the three sisters' unhappy lives, than their common goal to stop Nino's wedding. In fact, they only talk to Bo the fiancée about Nino's predilection for men; there aren't desperate attempts to stop the wedding. It is sad that the three sisters only care about money and not about Nino's happiness. As an Oscar nominated film, I was expecting the film to be funnier and more edgy, but I was disappointed.
