15 Sister (L'Enfant D'En Haut)

See all showtimes for all Southampton cinemas >>

A Swiss ski resort provides rich pickings for 12-year-old urchin Simon, who pilfers expensive equipment and supplies then sells his booty back down the valley, before returning to the cramped apartment he shares with his flighty sister, Louise.

Visually arresting, snow-laden landscapes and strong, naturalistic performances underpin Ursula Meier's engaging family portrait, which has been deservedly feted on the festival circuit. A Swiss ski resort provides rich pickings for 12-year-old urchin Simon (Kacey Mottet Klein), who pilfers expensive equipment and supplies then sells his booty back down the valley, before returning to the cramped apartment he shares with his flighty sister, Louise (Lea Seydoux). Writer-director Meier succinctly conveys the divide between the holidaymakers up the mountain and the impoverished locals at the other end of the cable car, who live hand to mouth and steal to survive. Klein and Seydoux are both excellent, their complex relationship sketched in precise strokes.
