This is certainly different
2 March 1999 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

You certainly can accuse Lebensborn of being a cliché movie, like it or not. It's wise to know that the movie is controversial from the very beginning to the very last (and surprising) scene. The plot is about two twins who get in college and start to realize that a process of generating arian babies through genetic research is being held at the campus. They get kinda lost, because in a way the process is making their lives easier, though it's morally incorrect especially because of its connection with the nazi concepts. I certainly don't know where this movie came from (it "appeared" in brazilian cable), but wherever it was, it's underrated.
