Sisters, or the Balance of Happiness
Two sisters share a complex and compelling relationship in the well crafted film about sibling rivalry. Anna seems dependent, emotionally and economically, on Maria. Successive inward turns of the screw reveal them, Siamese twin-like, bonded to one another, so that eventually it is uncertain as to who exploits and dominates whom. SISTERS, OR THE BALANCE OF HAPPINESS probes into psychic extremes, it is both tender and violent, delicate and melodramatic.
