Simon lives with his older sister in a housing complex below a luxury Swiss ski resort. With his sister drifting in and out of jobs and relationships, twelve-year-old Simon takes on the responsibility of providing for the two of them. Every day, he takes the lift up to the opulent ski world above, stealing equipment from rich tourists to resell to the local kids down in the valley. He is able to keep their little family afloat with his small-time hustles and his sister is thankful for the money he brings in. But, when Simon partners with a crooked British seasonal worker, he begins to lose his boundaries, affecting his relationship with his sister and plummeting him into dangerous territory.

"...where HOME allowed humor to soften the crisis of trapped life, SISTER delivers a searing drama that allows no escape." - Susan Gerhard, Keyframe

Very good film. Well directed and written. Love the cast, grate photography and art direction.

The boy's role as an adult hustler was worth a few laughs in the beginning.

But when the boy's sister/mom entered the picture...it was getting interesting

Saw this before, some years ago, enjoyed seeing it again, mostly for Kasey Mottet Klein.

well imaged dysfunctional, yet intense attachment between "sis" and "boy"; the boy's savvy and crafty will for survival is remarkable and reflects a timeless suis genre: a bizarre ending passage, fleeting, eternal, deathless, yet mori-bound. Good film.
