‘Hermanos Sisters’: Joaquin Phoenix transforms into an effective and ruthless cowboy of the Wild West

French director Jacques Audiard has a complex and extensive filmography. A repertoire of good films about which it is very difficult to choose one over the rest. Two consecrated him in France: ‘My heart has stopped beating’ (2005) and ‘A prophet’ (2009). The latter allowed him to be at the Oscar ceremony as a nominee for a non-English speaking film.

Hidden among other works of reputed recognition such as ‘Dheepan’ or ‘Of Rust and Iron’, In 2018, the French filmmaker filmed a harsh, intense, and high-quality western that focuses on the Wild West in the middle of the gold rush. A film in which Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly shine with their own light, both are the Sisters brothers, capable of anything, but in their own style. Ruthless, unpredictable, uncomfortable, touching… Some characters. Audiard knew how to get the most out of it and make the novel by Canadian Patrick Dewitt his own. on which the main story of the Sisters brothers is based.

Audiard triumphed at the Cannes Festival with the Palme d’Or for ‘Dheepan’ and the Grand Jury Prize for ‘A Prophet’, but the ‘Sisters Brothers’ gave him the best director award at the Venice Festival. An award that rounds off the great work of this western that navigates between debauchery and lyricism. Now the director returns to Cannes with ‘Emilia Perez’, showing that he is in good shape and with stories still to tell at 71 years old.. An essential director in 21st century cinema. Any of his films (of many styles) are a must-see. None will disappoint you. And they all hide something. Deep. Like the ‘Sisters Brothers’.
