Beautiful touching story, the way its told feels like the sisters are a real family, there is an immediate chemistry, and I love how they showed lots of little special every day moments , the diary story telling is very effective.

Sheer delight! - Our Little Sister review by TE

What a wonderful film! Very assured direction and camera work enhance a good story with rounded characters.

It manages to be 'feel good' without the usual sentimental syrup...just a simple joy to watch.

There are shades of dark in the tale, but the sisterly bonds are beautifully conveyed.

It's rare to watch a film and wish that it was a whole box-set, but I wanted to see how their lives progress.

My only concern was how they manage to stay so slim given all the very delicious food that is featured throughout!

Loved this gentle and heartwarming film which nonetheless tackled problems of broken families, relationships and trying to maintain family and traditional values in the modern world.
