My Lovely Sister is a poignant melodrama about sibling rivalry and reconciliation. Set in an impoverished town in present-day Israel, Marco Carmel’s feature, based on a Moroccan Jewish folk tale, centres on a curious love triangle among the sour and superstitious Rahma, her long-suffering husband Robert and the ghost of Rahma’s estranged beautiful sister, Marie, who dies from the pain of banishment after marrying an Arab fisherman. Wracked with guilt, the family’s conscience is tested as they try to make peace with the past and wrestle over Marie’s final resting place.
