FULL SYNOPSIS

A grown woman, Solange ([[Performer~P127227~Pascale Bussieres~pascalebussières]]) reacts with entirely understandable skepticism when Fabienne (Pascale Parouissien), a disreputable-looking woman she has never met, arrives at her doorstep and announces that she is her older sister. The first time this happens, she closes the door in her face, certain that it is a mistake. Later, she allows Fabienne into her life and her apartment, though she is still not convinced of her outrageous claim. Nonetheless, she learns a great deal about this new figure in her life. Fabienne has lost custody of her seven-year old daughter, for instance, and has had many lesbian affairs. These key revelations generally burst forth from Fabianne during her not infrequent emotional storms. In an odd touch, at certain points in the film the actors break character and discuss their own real lives and the roles they are playing in the movie. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
