Anastasija and Diana are two sisters living in a Latvian orphanage. When they learn that an American family is willing to adopt them, a decision needs to be made.
« Linda Olte manages to find a balance between satire and poignancy. » (ioncinema)
« Sisters finds its power in less contrived moments, particularly those in which the camera lingers on Anastasia’s face when she enjoys some laughter with her mother, sings to her niece or hugs her sister. These chinks of normality, of what could be, offer genuine light in the darkness. » (Cineuropa)
