Sisters or the Balance of Unhappiness
(Schwestern oder Die Balance des Glücks)

Two sisters share a complex and compelling relationship in the well crafted film about sibling rivalry. Anna (Gudrn Gabriel) seems dependent, emotionally and economically, on Maria (Jutta Lampe). 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.
