A fun story about a family of 3 sisters whose gay brother, Nino, has decided to marry a woman in order to inherit their childhood summer retreat (Hotel Paraiso) on the coast of Portugal. The sisters plot to sabotage the engagement so as to save the hotel for themselves.Written by
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.
