review by
Mike Haberfelner

Young art teacher Anne (Kali Russell) is put in front of an intergalactic court to be judged for her life choices, even if she isn't aware she has done anything wrong. In fact after their parents died, she was pretty much a model sister to Karen (Holly Bonney), whom she brought up the best she could, especially considering her young age. But then Karen vanished, and Anne fell into a big hole of sorrow. But now she has come across one of her students, Ginger (Linnea Gregg), whom she's taking a instant liking in, so much so that she more and more accepts her in her sister's stead. And when Ginger gets kicked out of her apartment, Anne is more than happy to take her in. Thing is, over time, Ginger starts to act more and more irrationally, so much so that she eventually shows cannibalistic urges. And when Anne takes a liking in school janitor Jeff (Alex Stage), Ginger goes more and more out of bounds, so much so that she beats Anne up. However, this is of course only one side of the story ...


Now a simple synopsis is hardly ideal for doing Sister Tempest justice, as beneath its story that's already weird enough, the movie's really chock-full of oddities, wacky symbolism, an intentionally scrambled up continuity with many flashbacks and flash forwards, and an obvious predilection for playing with science fiction elements (like a giant spaceman crushing the city in one scene, then just disappearing to never be alluded to again), no matter how well they fit at first glance - and the result is quite simply wonderful, as director Joe Badon takes a very light-footed, even comedic approach to things (without turning this into a full-blown comedy) and makes this film an experience in (good-natured) weirdness, that's basically to be seen to be believed.
