Storyline

Ten years ago Wolf and Sabine Palfy got divorced. Since then their daughter Charlie grew up with her father and her twin sister Louise lived with her mother. They never knew anything about one another and thus only met by chance when they join a boarding school in Scotland. At first they cannot stand each other but after a while they start gathering information about their origin. Realizing their relationship they plan to bring their parents back together: Thus, Charlie visits her mother and pretends to be Louise, whereas her sister goes to the father pretending to be Charlie.

Quite funny remake of Erich Kästner's "Das doppelte Lottchen"
3 February 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

"Charlie & Louise" is a modern version about twin girls separated at birth and accidently stumbling upon each other - this time during a language course in Scotland. Of course, they don't like each other at first - that is, until they find out they're twins. As they want to get to know their respective other parent, what's the obvious result?

Although the storyline is rather old ("invented" by Erich Kästner in the 1950s), this film, playing in the 1990s, is still amusing and funny. Even touching at some points. Friederike and Floriane Eichhorn as Charlotte and Louise are acting rather well, a number of lines really make you laugh.

I can recommend this film to all people who like comedy/family movies. It's German only, however!
