gets a new look !
Sonia and Karine Hamlet, two sisters living with their mother in the suburbs of Paris, are allowed to go night clubbing in the big city for the very first time. Thomas, a friend, drives them there. Thomas takes ill in the night club and is taken to hospital. The two girls find themselves stranded in Paris, at night, without any money and unable to contact their mother, whose phone line has been cut off. An old Algerian man notices their distress…
The city, the night, watchful eyes and chance encounters... Two young girls lost in Paris after dark... A man wants to help them but he makes them scared… During the night, a father-daughter relationship is established between the two sisters and this man. He doesn’t seem to have a family. The girls barely knew their dad. The girls give this lonely man some happiness by making him feel like a father for a couple of hours. In return, he helps them discover themselves. The night and Paris as the time and place of their meeting and their respective self-discoveries: this is what “The Hamlet Sisters” is about. (Abdelkrim Bahloul - excerpt from press kit)
