Dearest Sister (Mattie Do, 2016) is that curious mix of a Lao/Estonian co-production. Nok has been hired to look after Ana in the capital. She's married to Jakob, an Estonian working for an NGO. Conveniently Ana has started to be given winning lottery numbers by the dead. This though makes people think Nok has been stealing money. No one seems to trust anyone else here, with good reason in most cases. There's a long tradition of Asian horror films which the subtle and not so subtle touches on display here are a fine addition.
