Storyline

When 27-year-old Charlotte, meets her 35-year-old half-brother Henrik, who is married with one child for the first time as an adult, it becomes an encounter without boundaries, between two people who don't know what a normal family is. How does sibling love manifest itself if you have never experienced it before? Homesick is an unusual family drama about seeking a family, and breaking every rule to be one.

A disappointing execution/ending
19 January 2021 | by kenztaySee all my reviews

The plot is interesting, GSI isn't usually a subject that prompts an entire film and seeing the trailer only made me more interested.

The film however is kind of dull. I wanted to see more scenes with Charlotte and Henrik, to have them at least talk about what they're doing and the consequences.

The ending was atrocious.
