Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Maria Schell, a beautiful and talented girl born to a family of artists, a renowned actress and darling of the public enjoyed an unparalleled career for a German actress. Despite a glamorous acting career with over seventy feature film appearances, alongside such legends as Oscar Werner, Gary Cooper and Marcello Mastroianni and numerous awards and nominations, Maria Schell s life was filled with romances, loneliness, unrequited love, disappointments, debt, depression, suicide attempts and an unwillingness to grow old gracefully. Her brother and confidant, actor/ director/ co-writer, blends interviews with staged scenes in this examination of their personal relationship, expressing his great respect for her lifework and the regret he felt at her later failures.

Review

MY SISTER MARIA is a thoughtful look backward, a summing up that attempts to understand what is ephemeral and what truly lasts, what it is that matters. In the final analysis, the intensity of feeling, the honesty involved, capture us. That this is who Maria Schell is here and now, there can be no doubt. --Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES

To watch MY SISTER MARIA requires us to decide what we think a film is, what we think a documentary should do, how far we think art justifies its cost in human feelings. Those who think FAHRENHEIT 9/11 blurs the line between fact and interpretation have no idea how mysterious and challenging that line can become. The fundamental drama of MY SISTER MARIA takes place in our own minds, as we struggle with the enigma of viewing it. --Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN TIMES
