  • Min lilla syster

A heart-warming humorous drama about eating disorder told from the perspective of a 12-year-old girl. Chubby and slightly odd, Stella is on the verge of puberty and eager to become an adult. She looks up to her older sister Katja, a talented ice-skater and family pet. When she is not writing romantic poetry about Katja’s coach Jacob, Stella is practicing for her first kiss, making prank calls and trying to impress other students with her sophisticated taste. Observing her sister, Stella notices she doesn’t seem as happy as before – she trains for hours on end, acts unusually and eats less and less. The winner of the Crystal Bear for Best Film in the Generation Kplus competition at the 2015 Berlinale.
