Synopsis by Mark Deming
Noted French actress Nathalie Richard makes her English-language debut in this downbeat drama. Anne (Richard) is a woman who, after the loss of her leg in an accident, has withdrawn into her apartment, where her only contact with the outside world is her significant other, Donny (Daniel Aukin). One day Anne's sister Iris (Sarah Adler) appears; she hasn't spoken with Anne in ten years, but after a decade of free-spirited traveling, she's decided this is where she wants to stay. Anne takes Iris in and comes to enjoy her boisterous personality, but Donny dislikes her intensely, and the two begin to spar, with a serious conflict inevitable. This first effort from writer/director David Barker was shown at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.
