Between Sisters, the revelations of a family
When director Manu Gerosa decides to film his mother and aunt, two Italian sisters in the autumn of their life, he also captures a relationship as endearing as it is complex.
Perhaps sensing that her memory is eroding faster than her life, Teresa gives voice to some torments of her life. This way, between the usual quarrels between sisters, the cries, the laughter, a crack opens itself to let some untold stories arise, a truth that had been for many reasons, being guilt one of them.
Ornella senses that it is time to open a space for Teresa to vent her. Between Sisters is an example of the intimate cinema that Truffaut once spoke about. A cinema that is close and naked as a revealing secret.
