Sister of Mine

Pedro Aguilera
Demonios tus ojos
Spain, Colombia 2017 / 94’
subtitles: Polish and English
Sexy Durga Son of the Snow Queen

Oliver is a film director who has been living in Los Angeles for years. Preoccupied by arguments with his impetuous partner and interviews with journalists who have been pestering him, he seldom thinks about his family back in Madrid-he does not even keep in touch with its surviving members. At last until he happens to see his younger sister Aurora in an amateur porn video online, and he quickly becomes infatuated with her. A cinephile's film for cinephiles: in Sister of Mine, Pedro Aquilera makes playful references to the works of Antonioni, the cult videonasties of Ruggero Deodato, and Michael Powell's Peeping Tom, while confronting the subject of forbidden attraction between half-siblings. Boldly questioning the limits of what is permissible, the protagonists-portrayed by Julia Perillán and Ivana Baquero, who gained fame in Guillermo del Toro 's Pan's Labyrinth-start playing a dangerous game the outcome of which can only hurt them. But they are unable to resist it nevertheless.
