I have only seen this film in Italian and, as I am still working on my language skills, had to watch it three times before I could really see how skilfully it is made. While the starring roles are extremely well performed, including that of Violente Placido, it is the attention to detail in all the "minor" characters which really makes it a pleasure to watch the film more than once. And while I would hope that the "black magic", on which the tale's twist depends, does not really exist, it nevertheless makes the story work. All in all "L'Anima Gemella" confirms my high opinion of Sergio Rubini not only as an actor but also as a director. For example, "Il Viaggio della Sposa" is quite different in content but also explores the theme of of how intense experiences can transform people's lives and again has a marvellous performance from the director.
