Just as Stella enters the exciting world of adolescence, she discovers that Katja, her big sister and role model is hiding an eating disorder. The disease slowly tears the family apart. A story about jealousy, love and betrayal told with warmth, depth and laughter.
 



 

When did we learn to 'compete'? Since when have we
 adopted an idea called 'struggle for existence' which
 compares ourselves to the others and beats them in order
 to survive. Stella, an elementary school student, sees her big
 sister as her role model, Katja. Katja, a figure skater, has a
 secret she cannot tell anyone, even her parents or her coach.
 She has an eating disorder called 'anorexia' which makes
 her refuse to eat or throw up. She has become anorexic to
 maintain her slim figure as a figure skater and it's all because
 she's eager to excel in everything she pursues. As she
 promised not to tell anyone about her sister's secret, Stella
 makes every effort in her own way to help her sister. Just like
 most of women's movies, there are no villains in My Skinny
 Sister
. The film denounces a negative effect of \'competition'
 on younger generation and portrays the world of young
 girls in a kind, profound and affectionate perspective. This
 seemingly small world of the little girl serves as a metonymy
 telling that human beings in this world have survived not
 from competition but from mutual support and care. This
 is what makes this movie so powerful. My Skinny Sister
 won the Crystal Bear award as well as the International
 Jury Special Mention in the Generation kplus section at
 the Berlinale in 2015 and also received Nordic Film: Dragon
 Award Audience Choice at the Göteborg Film Festival in
 Sweden. This Swedish Little Miss Sunshine is one of the
 films you cannot miss this year. [Sunah KIM]
