Le Sorelle

La giovane Diana abbandona Roma e il lavoro per rivedere la sorella Marta, sposata da due anni con Alex. Innamorata del marito, affettuoso e gentile, appassionato coltivatore di fiori esotici, Marta cerca tuttavia un compenso ad alcune sue manchevolezze tra le braccia di un altro uomo, col quale si incontra, con regolarità, in una capanna. Diana si accorge che in quell’unione coniugale, apparentemente così solida, c’è una incrinatura, e ne approfitta per cercar di riconquistare quell’affetto esclusivo che aveva sulla sorella prima del suo matrimonio. A tal punto questa manovra l’assorbe, che non ha tempo né voglia di accettare la corte di Dario, il giovane cugino di Alex, ospite per qualche giorno nella sua villa. Accortosi, Alex, della situazione, decide di allontanarsi con Dario, per lasciare che le due donne si manifestino i loro sentimenti. Marta respinge risolutamente il ritorno a quel passato da cui la vita con Alex l’ha liberata, per cui Diana, disperata,…La distribuzione del film fu molto osteggiata dalla Chiesa Cattolica attraverso il Centro Cattolico Cinematografico (C.C.C.), nonostante siamo ancora nel periodo in cui un amore omosessuale al cinema deve per forza finire tragicamente.

CRITICA:

“The Sisters” is a film that is quite simply heavy drama. Contrary to the other reviewer’s thoughts, this film was not intended to be a giallo. If the other reviewer would like to see a very similar story presented in the context of a horror film, he should view “Frustration”, aka “The Chambermaid’s Dream”, which was made the following year, and is much more exploitive sexually and horrifically than “The Sisters”, which chooses to leave much of the sexuality and violence confined to the viewer’s imagination. Both films are successful in their efforts to tell their story in their own choice of style.
“The Sisters” actually tells the somber story of two sisters who are reunited after several years apart when the younger sister gets married, and after rejecting the older sister’s notion that their same-sex love is superior to the marriage, the younger sister decides to stay married. These two sisters, the younger sister’s older husband, and the husband’s younger brother, who tries to court the unmarried sister, form a dysfunctional quartet in which no one is able to find any happiness as the film builds to its depressing climax. Along the way we are treated to diversions into adultery, sightseeing, horse racing, cave exploration, parties, and ultimately many bitter arguments and very tangible tension.
This film is definitely overlong and ponderous at times, but is worth the watch for the fine performances of Nathalie Delon and Susan Strasberg in the lead roles. Giancarlo Giannini is also excellent and very sympathetic as the man who tries to woo lesbian Delon into marriage, who refuses to give up until the bitter end. The version of this film that I have is in English with Greek subtitles, so obviously this film is not that hard to find.
To conclude, watching “The Sisters” is like being a guest in someone’s home and inadvertently listening in on and hearing private conversations that are so heated and intimate you want to stop listening, but can’t. As such, the film certainly appeals to me, though a tighter edit would certainly help the languid pace. (“The Sisters” is a film that is quite simply heavy drama.
