interesting teaser
2 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Apparently this 11-minute film was put together to show investors. Inseparable is about two men, Joe and Charlie, either twins,(both Benedict Cumberbatch) or just two people as in The Scapegoat who happen to look exactly alike. The family man, Joe (I guess) finds out he has an inoperable brain tumor and is dying, and he meets with Charlie who appears to be homeless -- anyway, he's disheveled -- and they change identities.

The other person who posted seems to think this is the most original idea in the world. Actually it's been done on every soap opera, and in films like Dead Ringer, A Stolen Life, The Dark Mirror, The Scapegoat etc. I love switched identity stories, though this one is probably a bit more somber than they usually are. What is intriguing is that Cumberbatch actually plays two different characters. Often, when people play twins, one might look different as far as hair or grooming or whatever, but basically, they have the same personality. It's very rare when an actor can actually create two completely different characters. Cumberbatch manages to do this. Charlie's voice was quite a bit lower than Joe's, and he walked and sat differently. And in the last frame, when Charlie goes to Joe's house dressed like Joe, his wife looks at him at first smiling, and then with a puzzled look on her face. Because no matter how much alike twins are, if you know them, you can tell them apart. It would be interesting to see if that's true in this story.

I'm telling you this story and I actually only heard like two lines of dialogue. The rest of it is told more as a silent film, and though a couple of other things were said, I couldn't hear them.

Anyway, a filmmaker can't go wrong showing an investor anything with Benedict Cumberbatch in it -- I mean, he could just show Cumberbatch sitting in a chair reading for 11 minutes and sell it -- so I hope this happens.
