Little Sister

Synopsis: After several years without contact, Martijn visits his sister Daantje, who just started to live on her own in Amsterdam. He tells her he is going to make a documentary from her life, and enters her home live with a video camera. This creates tension between Daantje and her brother because he wants to recall something that happened between them in the past. To keep Martijn at a distance, Daantje starts a relationship with Ramón, but Martijn gets between them. He manages to talk to her so that she remembers the things that happened when they were kids. This helps him to overcome his obsession for his sister, and after playing over their history, he is finally able to see her without the video camera like he did during the course of the movie.

Im on my way.

I'm on my way. Look.

Have a good look.

And you are going to help me.

To record things.




I think it's here.

Come on.





Aren't you going to let me in?

So this is where she lives.

Quite luxurious, for someone who has

only recently moved out on her own.

You're older now. And taller.

- Switch it off.


- Why?

I want to record

the way you react to me.

Well, this is it.

You can switch it off now.

- Can you help me with my backpack?

Ive brought you something.

Isn't that nice of me?

For your collection.

Why are you here?

- I had to see you. I really missed you.

You might have called first.

- You wouldn't have let me in, I think.

You frightened me.

- Why? Or do you believe your own lies?

Switch that thing off, dickhead.

What's wrong?

I'm not doing anything.




Who's that creep?

- Creep?

My brother. His name is Martijn.

- Hello.

I didn't know you had a brother.

- I didn't, until recently.


- I hadn't seen him for a long time.

And why is that, do you suppose?

- He lives in London.

That's right. But I'm here now,

to make a film about her life.


You're a very enthusiastic cameraman.

Are you going to film everything?

Of course. Until I drop.

What does Daantje think?

- She really likes it.

You've come at the right moment.

- Why?

Now you can film our show.

- What show?

Daan, why haven't you told him

about our show?

Shut up, Ingeborg.

- Sis...

Now he can film everything.


- Absolutely.

It's heavy. Let me help you.


How much is that projector?

- 25 guilders.

Does it work?

- Alright then, make it 10.


Get up. Wake up.

Watch the alarm clock.


Keep watching.

Keep watching.


Exactly 20 years ago you became

my sister. Congratulations.

Very good.

Is this really necessary?

- Traditions should be honoured.

You're the boss today.

What do you mean?

- You know what I mean. Little sister.

No, I don't know what you mean.

No? Think hard.

- I really don't have the faintest.


This is Bas.

- Hi, lm Bas.

Hello, Bas.

- And this is Ramon.

Are you the little brother?

What brother?

- The one with the camera.

Yeah, me too.

Little brother, come here.

Zoom in.

Zoom in.


Are you allowed to read that?

Why don't you come and film

at my place?

For the show.

Ill let you see what lm working on.

Why would I do such a thing?

Aren't you interested

in what I have to say?

I am. If it concerns Daantje.

- And if not?

You can go to hell.

- What?

You can go to hell. Just like that.

And you? Fucking bitch.

Why do I hate you so much, Daantje?


Little girls become big girls.

Stop or I'll kiss him.

- Go ahead.


- I'll do whatever I want, Daantje.

Are you okay?

Can't you watch that boyfriend

of yours? This isn't a zoo.

Who are you talking about?

- That sleaze ball. Your boyfriend.

You know what, Martijn...

...why don't you rewind your tape?

Why did you drink so much?

Ingeborg, zoom in

on this drunk's head.

Did you get that?

- Yes, I got it.

Martijn, I don't mind going to hell,

you know.


- Bye.


Great party.

It was a great party.

Nice guy.

Do you often have boyfriends like that?

He has a cute way of kissing.

Daantje here.

Oh, it's you.

Thank you, but that was yesterday.

My birthday was yesterday.

Well, it may be today where you are.
