  1. 88
    Brave, heartless, and exceedingly strange, a quasi-documentary in which the actor Maximilian Schell mercilessly violates the privacy of his older sister, Maria.
  2. A thoughtful look backward, a summing up that attempts to understand what is ephemeral and what truly lasts, what it is that matters in the final analysis.
  3. 80
    A tender, achingly poignant portrait of the Austrian actress Maria Schell, My Sister Maria is a valentine from her younger brother Maximilian.
  4. 63
    Artful, especially in the ways it avoids sentimentality and employs vintage film clips of truly riveting performances...But Maximilian's narcissistic examination of his theatrical family -- can be boring, and his creative license with the truth is kind of troubling.
  5. A heartfelt but eccentric, pseudo-documentary tribute to his sister Maria.
  6. In many ways this is an extraordinary movie: there's probably never been such a portrait of a major star in the grip of old age.
  7. 20
    Deeply personal and deeply silly.
