Storyline

Dr. Reineger is a child neuro-psychologist who has become confident that the twin Anna has a form of autism called Asperger's Syndrome, rendering her unable to cope with reality. As for her blind sister, Sarah, the Doctor cannot say for sure why her visions map so closely to Anna's. At home, their father leaves the family. To escape the pain, the girls sink deeper and deeper into their imaginations. When a major earthquake takes their mother's life, Reineger is left with helping the now-orphaned twins cope, while at the same time dealing with his own struggle concerning the girls' prophetic visions. The girls escape the institution. The subsequent search party can't track them. Have they indeed transcended the physical realm? Written by Eric Leiser

Intricate mystery revolving around, and beyond, imagination
19 May 2007 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I was privileged to be able to enjoy this beautifully crafted film, screened at Aarhus Festival of Independent Arts in Denmark.

The story begins and revolves around the enigmatic twins, Anna and Sarah, whose parents contact Dr. Reineger to conduct a research regarding visions they see. A big part of the film is animated, mostly with stop-motion technique, by Eric Leiser, which combined with the absolutely terrific atmospheric score by Jeffrey Leiser creates an unique viewing pleasure. These imagination scenes are also often the force that further allows the unfolding of the multi-layered plot.

I was amazed by the animation and music alone, but on top of that, director Leiser has also created an enjoyable viewing experience, which I hope will meet many many audience members in the future.

Warmly recommended!
