Diana's marriage has ended in divorce, so she goes to stay for a while with her younger sister Martha, whom she hadn't seen in ages. However, Diana is actually there to try to rekindle the passionate incestuous relationship that she and her sister once had until Martha eventually decided to end it and leave Diana for good. Diana accepted this at the time, but then she got married and realized that she can never love anyone like she does Martha and that she will never be happy without her. Unfortunately for her, Martha is now married to an older rich man and enjoys her married life free of Diana, even though she does cheat on her husband occasionally with other men, but he doesn't seem to mind. Diana, mad with longing and lust for her sister, tries everything she can to convince her to come back to her, but Martha would rather die than to do that.

Beautifully filmed.Sexy mature women.Dull film..!!
1 April 2000 | by von-13See all my reviews

Wellknown "menage a trois" formula for this French film directed by an obviously talented Italian...R. Malenotti. A younger woman visits her sister and her husband. The sisters have had a lesbian affair(with each other!!) earlier in their lives. The husband is handsome, rich and...impotent. A loverboy for the older sister is close by!! But on the entertainment side this (giallo)drama lacks excitement and tension. There's no " mystery" and hardly any murders. Technically..ie. camera,angels, compositions,editing,lighting,location,interiors,colors,faces, darkness,acting....all is extremely well executed. But the "balls" are missing!!! There's no shortage when dealing with sex....tits,buttoms,lesbianism, we get to see it all. if only Le Sorelle(The Sisters) had had some "action" in the giallo-tradition of Dario Argento and a couple of Euro-perversions a-la Jess Franco,Sergio bergonzelli....this film could have been a total classic laying behind top-films of the above mentioned Euro-directors. As it is now...it falls flat on the floor, more or less!!. It's lbx'ed about 1:1.90 on the Danish DVS-label, running for 106.15 mins and of course completely impossible to find anywhere nowadays. I'm glad I keep it in my collection.
