As the saying goes, good things come in threes, and on this note, post-production on their latest work of fiction Schwesterlein is almost finished. There is no cinema release date as yet, nor is there any news on its possible selection to participate in Swiss or European festivals. But, going by the information that has transpired to date, some interesting surprises would appear to be in store.

Ever since her twin brother Sven’s Leukaemia diagnosis, Lisa seems to be losing her foothold on life. Married to Martin, a manager in a private school, Lisa decides to abandon her career as a playwright in Berlin, following her husband to Switzerland to start a family. But the more Sven’s health deteriorates, the more pressing the existential questions linked to Lisa’s daily life become. She decides to reconnect with her Berlin roots and her true aspirations. There will be consequences, however, for this radical metamorphosis, and Lisa and Martin’s relationship will not come out unscathed.

The international cast includes a host of well-known names: Nina Hoss (who has made a name for herself in recent years through her close working relationship with director Christian Petzold: Yella [+lee también:
