My dear messed-up sisters, why did we all end up like this?
The three sisters are struggling with their own problems. Heesook, Mrs. Sorry, is neglected by her family. Miyeon, Mrs. Devout, witnesses her husband having an affair. And Mi-ok, Mrs. Hysteric, is just weird, always drunk and frustrated with life. The sisters are going to gather for their father’s birthday. What will happen? We will see when the day comes.
Eldest sister Heesook lives a busy life taking care of her husband and daughter. She is unadaptable as she has a hard time showing her true feelings and even joins a pseudo-religious group to be baptized. Middle sister Miyeon, who lives with her choirmaster and professor husband, covers up the violence behind her religious beliefs. Youngest sister Miok is an immature playwriter who married a divorcee with a child out of pique. Heesook is diagnosed with cancer while Miok gets all angry and calls herself trash and harasses her family. Miyeon, who appears to be the most peaceful on the outside, is in shock as she witnesses her husband having an affair with his choir member. The awkward, distant, and wounded three sisters gather at their hometown for their father’s birthday. However, on the day of the party, there is a big mess because of their little brother Jinseob’s abnormal behavior, and the past of the three sisters slowly reveals.
The film, which captures the daily life of three sisters becoming far from happiness, is unconventional and pushes family relationships to the extreme, displaying the unique production of director Lee Seungwon. And above all, the thrilling performances by actors Kim Sunyoung, Moon Sori, and Jang Yoonju are brilliant. It is a film that makes us look back on family and siblings. (CHUN Jinsu)
