From Russia With Girl Love

So I was looking for info on the remake of Brian De Palma’s Sisters from 1973. I didn’t find much of anything, but the search returned a link about new film from Russia titled “A Sisters Kiss.” Here’s the copy from the movie’s website:
The story takes place in Russia in the city of St. Petersburg. Two Russian schoolgirls suffer crash in natural love. Once they meet each other and fall in love. But once they found that they sisters...

They what, commit suicide after really long drawn out monologues? That would be the classic Russian thing to do.



“And it’s not porn!” Maybe you shouldn’t put that in your trailer…



Admit it, you wanna see it. I know I do, but for purely artistic reasons of course.

OK - Google was messing with me and I ended up with two deleted comments when all was trying to do was correct a spelling mistRake. Don't remember what I said now, but the jist of was, I think, that it looked like a good quality production and liked the leaves in second clip and the sensitivty of the scenes. Not my cup of Russian tea, but might be worth watching for uh like you said - artistic reasons.

As for the not porn statement, I think that is accurate and maybe will save them criticism from people who would otherwise go see it looking for that and being disappointed.

And yeah, eye (or mind) of the beholder.
