Canale 5 to air TV Movie My Brother, My Sister

Tonight , in prime time, Mediaset flagship will broadcast My Brother, My Sister, produced by Lotus Production (a Leone Film Group company) and directed by Roberto Capucci, starring Alessandro Preziosi and Claudia Pandolfi. The cast includes also Ludovica Martino, Francesco Cavallo, Stella Egitto and Caterina Murino.

Upon the death of their father, Tesla (Claudia Pandolfi) and her brother Nik (Alessandro Preziosi) find themselves, by a peculiar inheritance pact, having to live together for a year under the same roof, even though they have not seen each other for more than 20 years. Tesla's children also live in the house: Sebastiano (Francesco Cavallo), a gifted cellist suffering from high-functioning schizophrenia, to whom the woman has devoted her life and obsessive, suffocating protection, and Carolina (Ludovica Martino), with whom she has a difficult and conflictual relationship instead.
The difficult cohabitation will trigger clashes and constant bickering between Nik and Tesla, two siblings at polar opposites, and the birth of an unexpectedly strong bond between Nik and his nephew Sebastiano. Over time, everyone will slowly find a balance, until a series of events will lead the characters to come to terms with their own fears and secrets, in a difficult journey toward forgiveness and acceptance of themselves and their emotional and family ties.

The film is about relationships, protection, obsession, acceptance, real but also emotional dependence, conflict and forgiveness. Also central is the theme related to mental disability and specifically schizophrenia, from which Sebastiano suffers. The work of research and credibility of this important pathology, little known and considered than it should be, has been long and accurate, and thanks to the support of the SIP (Italian Psychiatry Society) and some of the most important psychiatrists in Italy, an attempt has been made to make the description of the pathology as truthful and accurate as possible.
