Movie Details

A young boy from the Swiss Alps resorts to stealing in order to survive, and finds his relationship with his erratic older sister growing increasingly strained in this desolate yet picturesque character study from director Ursula Meier. Simon and his sister live in a small apartment beneath a popular ski resort in the Swiss Alps. Their parents nowhere to be found, Simon resorts to stealing expensive ski equipment from wealthy vacationers, and turning it around at a tidy profit. But lately Simon has been growing increasingly attached to the staff and the guests at the resort, a development that begins to place a heavy burden on his relationship with his irresponsible older sister and guardian. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
