Netflix’s My Brother My Sister Review: Broken Family Drama

My Brother My Sister, aka My Brother, My Sister is now out on Netflix. Directed by Roberto Capucci, the film stars Claudia Pandolfi, Alessandro Preziosi, Ludovica Martino, Francesco Cavallo. Roberto wrote the 1 hour 50 minutes film with writer Paola Mammini. The Italian drama is dubbed in English and also has subtitles.

The synopsis reads – When their father’s will forces them to live together, siblings Nik and Tesla — and Tesla’s kids — try to overcome their differences to become a family.

My Brother, My Sister Review Contains Mild Spoilers

In My Brother My Sister on Netflix, Nikola (Alessandro Preziosi) and Tesla (Claudia Pandolfi), have to live together in their father’s house after his demise. The brother and sister don’t share a good equation and are not happy with their father’s will. Their father was a science geek, and hence, they have such a name based on an inventor.

Tesla is a single mother of two teenagers – Carolina and Sebastiano (played by Ludovica Martino and Francesco Cavallo). Her son Sebastiano is diagnosed with Schizophrenia. His condition has made Tesla an overprotective and overcaring mom to him. Carolina has differences with Tesla as she doesn’t like her mother’s obsession to care for her brother. On the other hand, Nik is a loner.

When the separated siblings and the kids come together under the same roof, they learn the importance of family. The characters realise how important it is to have someone to always embrace you on your good and worst days. Netflix movie My Brother, My Sister not only focuses on Nik-Tesla’s reunion but also Sebastiano’s schizophrenia.

Not a lot of movies or series have covered the condition of schizophrenia. Roberto Capucci has tried to shed some light on it through Seb. I really liked the sensitive approach of the writers-director and characters towards the same. The family element is highlighted in abundance – fights, drama, tears, love, and care.

When it comes to the sibling angle, we know they’re going to patch up in the end. Yet, it’s good to see the way writers bring that satisfying end. The movie has a serious narrative tone, with hardly any jokes or light moments. It can trigger people who are separated from their families, especially due to the pandemic.

Coming to performances, actor Francesco Cavallo has played his part as Sebastiano really well. Alessandro Preziosi and Claudia Pandolfi are also good as Nikola and Tesla.

My Brother My Sister Review: Netflix's latest Italian film is packed with family drama.


  1. I thought this movie was well done. But, the end was confusing? Did Seb die? Did he have a spirit of himself talk to family! Did he love! As on the end, who’s ashes? The Grandfather! Was it only Seb spirit there! But, with all those questions! It really did deal with what happens to people who love people with this form of mental illness. It also showed how this young man suffered. Well done!
