…is a film about Nenette and Boni, a brother and sister who were separated when their parents divorced but who meet up again years later. Pregnant Nenette runs away from boarding school, finds Boni who has a fixation on the wife of a baker couple who are taking care of him, and together they strengthen an emotional bond ‘beyond incest,’ according to one review I read.
The Claire Denis/ Tindersticks collaboration all began… with Denis repeatedly listening to the Tindersticks spoken word track, “My Sister,” from their second album while making this film. She got in touch with the band and the bond was formed. Consequently this soundtrack opens with a short instrumental version of that song. Says Staples: “The starting point was the musical motif of ‘My Sister,’ and Claire had used ‘Tiny Tears’ during the filming, so that got locked in. From that point, we decided on a kind of palette of sounds – vibes, piano, the organ, drums and bass – and tried to keep it within that kind of combo, reacting to the film.” And true enough, much of the music does convey that same simple, mellow, shuffly, vibe you hear on “My Sister,” though without the intense build of that song.
