No one else can be as annoying as one’s own family, however, the arguments between siblings are the most amusing. This is exactly what These Daughters of Mine is about. Marta (Agata Kulesza), a serial actress and a single mother, isn’t very lucky with men. Her sister Kasia (Gabriela Muskała) has a layabout husband, a drug-dealing son and shares the house with her parents. When their health starts to decline, the sisters – although they cannot even look at each other – are forced to join forces. Can they start to like each other a bit? These Daughters of Mine, rich with funny dialogues and excellent acting, vividly creates an image of a contemporary Polish family. How personal is this portrait? The story behind the film’s production will be revealed by its director, Kinga Dębska.
