Yeah, came here to post this, looks great. I read the book a couple years ago and loved it. One of my most anticipated movies of the year, if not the most.

Only Audiard I've seen is A Prophet and loved it.

I highly recommend this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2OhGLNvyAg

It doesn't share the technical brilliance Audiard displays in later works but it's his best film.

What does the title mean? It seems incoherent.

"Sisters" is their last name.

So, I saw it yesterday and it is very good. Once again, Audiard digs into flawed masculinity. The only "true" western since The Unforgiven. Exactly like its score, the film features just the right amount of good old western stuff showed in a "uniquely modern and stylized yet not in your face" way as well as very nice ideas you wonder why they were never showed in a western movie (John C. Reilly face to face with the first toothbrush he's ever seen, for instance). Although they obviously didn't get the biggest budget ever, the film feels incredibly grounded, gritty, dirty, realistic and has lots of interesting locations (most of it still takes place in smoky saloons and woods). The few minutes they spend in the muddy, crowded, Gangs Of New York-like version of San Francisco make me wish to see a western movie set only there.

One of my first thought when leaving the theater was that I wasn't sure of the rewatch value yet since the story, while fun and touching, is a tad too anecdotal for my taste... but I'd happily go see again it today.

Thanks I'll have to check it out.

I'm pretty sure you mean "Unforgiven." "The Unforgiven" is an Audrey Hepburn movie.

Pretty sure too. But who knows?
