    A Most Unusual Love Story
    Certificate: R
    Running Time: 110 mins
    Retail Price: $27.95
    Release Date:

    Meet Francis and Blake Falls, identical twin brothers who share a special bond. They finish each other`s sentences, they take care of each other, and they share each other`s feelings. They also share one body. Born conjoined at their sides, these "Siamese" twins seclude themselves from a society horrified by their unique appearance. But the brothers` co-existence is threatened when a beautiful young woman (former model Michele Hicks) enters their lives, challenging them to re-examine their physical and emotional co-dependence.

    Written by, directed by and starring real-life twins Michael and Mark Polish, Twin Falls Idaho is coloured with striking performances by the entire cast, including co-stars Lesley Ann Warren, Patrick Bauchau, Garrett Morris and William Katt. "Eerily effective, richly perverse…Twin Falls Idaho has style, gravity and originality to spare." - Janet Maslin, The New York Times.

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    How would you feel waking up next to the same person every morning? How would you feel having this person next to you when you eat, walk, sleep, go to the bathroom, have sex?
    This is the story of twins. Siamese twins.
    The human mind would normally categorize them as freaks, but the movie shows just how human they really are.
    With some very powerful scenes and unbelievable situations, the 3 leads really shine.
    The video transfer is ok. The transfer lacks some sharpness, but there are no compression signs to be seen.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are rarely used, but this is adequate for this kind of a movie.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include a commentary by the director and his brother, who both star in the movie.
    Bottom line - a well thought of and unusual story. Try it - you`d probably like it.
