Great and Dark Thriller
2 February 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The photographer and family man Matyas (Benoît Magimel) is married and has a happy life with his beloved wife Claire (Natacha Régnier), who is pregnant and near the delivery, and his young son Pierre (Nathan Lacroix). Matyas was raised in an orphanage, and he believes his mother died when he was six. However, he receives a correspondence and discovers that his mother has just passed away and that he has a twin brother, Thomas. Matyas does not recall his childhood with his mother and brother and has problems with blood. When Thomas visits his family, Matyas becomes paranoid, believing that his sibling wishes to takeover his family.

"Trouble" is a great and dark thriller, with a weird suspenseful and original story that recalled me the style of David Cronenberg and Dario Argento. The screenplay is open regarding the accident with Thomas – it is never clear whether Thomas self-inflicted the mutilation or Matyas did. The rage and feelings of Thomas together with the fact that Matyas was abandoned by his family seem to indicate that Matyas was the responsible; but the attitude of their father also seems to indicate that Thomas was abused by him. Anyway, the plot is dark, the cinematography and the special effects are excellent and the performance of Benoît Magimel is top-notch. The final twist was really unexpected and I do not understand why some people compares this film with other movies with twins (like for example Bette Davis' "Dead Ringer" or David Cronenberg's "Dead Ringers"). My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Duplicidade" ("Duplicity")
