Zus & Zo

"OK"

Zus & Zo Review


If nothing else, Zus & Zo proves how easy it is for a movie to get a Best Foreign Film Oscar nomination.

It's cute and quaint, a Hannah and Her Sisters done up Euro-style, which invariably means these days that someone is gay. Sure enough, our gay fella is getting married, and his three sisters will stop at nothing to end the travesty because an inheritance is at stake. Regardless, it's not terribly clear why. The girls don't seem to be able to muster an emotion about anything else, but for some reason a dying hotel merits their attention. That they intervene by trying to tempt bro with another guy is what makes it movie-worthy, though wouldn't a nice note or lunch with the fiancee to try to get her to call it off have made more sense?

Zus & Zo has plenty of cute little touches, but it's neither a masterpiece nor overwhelmingly funny. Like many romantic comedies these days, Zus & Zo (I somehow missed what the title was supposed to mean) tries to wow you with hopelessly pathetic supporting characters instead of telling a story that resembles anything truly new.
