VERDICT – 2/5
1) Twin brothers and successful gynecologists are living a synchronized lifestyle and sometimes substitute each other in professional as well as in personnel life. Their understanding deteriorates when one of them falls in love with a drug-addict actress.
1) There is no thrill, no mystery. Up to an extent, Nolan’s The Prestige (2006) borrowed some elements from the movie however there is nothing else in the plot.
2) It’s a slow movie with a few moments of Cronenberg’s trademark body-horror.
3) Apart from Jeremy Irons, there is a complete absence of a good supporting cast.
Bev: There’s nothing the matter with the instrument, it’s the body. The woman’s body is all wrong!
