There were never such devoted sisters,
Never had to have a chaperone, no sir,
I’m there to keep my eye on her
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrived from Rome
She wore the dress, and I stayed home
-“Sisters, Sisters,” by Irving Berlin
Having grown up with only a younger brother, I can only imagine what having a sister (older or younger) would be like. In spite of this, there’s something incredibly resonant about the familial relationships portrayed in Galilei Donna. On the run from the powerful Adni Moon Company, the three Ferrari sisters participate in a plot that is similar to The Da Vinci Code in its convoluted nature, focus on blood descendents, and apparent scientific errors. However, if one can set all that aside – or enjoy it thoroughly in its ridiculousness – Galilei Donna offers its viewer a lovely portrait of three sisters, each struggling to find their individual roles both within their immediate family and in the world beyond it.
