About the My Little Sister 💬

A once successful playwright sacrifices her life for her brother and thereby rediscovers what it feels like to be alive...

Brilliant playwright, Lisa (Nina Hoss) no longer writes. She lives in Switzerland with her family but her heart has stayed in Berlin, beating to the rhythm of her brother's heart. The ties between the twins have grown stronger since Sven (Lars Eidinger) was diagnosed with an aggressive type of leukaemia. He's a famous theatre actor and Lisa refuses to accept his fate, moving heaven and earth to get him back on stage. She gives her all for her soul mate, neglecting everything else, even risking her marriage. Her relationship with her husband starts to fall apart, but Lisa only has eyes for her brother, her mirror, who connects her back with her deepest aspirations and rekindles her desire to create, to feel alive...


MY LITTLE SISTER has a special meaning for us. This film brings together three elements that are central to our lives. First, the city of Berlin to which we've had a strong attachment for over fifteen years. Second, the theatre, as we are both actresses. And above all, a unique friendship that goes back to our childhood. Stéphanie and Véronique were first and foremost two teenagers who shared the same love of theatre and decided to make a career out of it. Together we created a multitude of shows and together we started making films.

To write MY LITTLE SISTER, we drew inspiration from our own atypical relationship, wherein we sometimes feel more alive when we are creating than in everyday life, like the twins in our movie, always hooked up to their shared imaginary world when they are together. We made them part of a theatre family because we are fascinated by the passion that drives those known in Germany as "Theatermenschen". In this community, an actor who doesn't perform doesn't exist. He is erased from memory. Whilst on stage he glows, borne by the presence of the audience. Through our characters' love of the theatre, our movie recounts in its own way the necessity of dreams as a way of escaping reality.

MY LITTLE SISTER is also the story of Lisa’s inner journey back to her creativity through the illness of her brother, she alters ego. By reconnecting with writing to beat back the shadows, she brings herself out of the darkness. Through the unbreakable bonds that link these two beings, our film celebrates the fragility and power of life, the strength of transmission, and relates that the end of one life can also be the beginning of another.
