User Reviews

On choice and consequence

A very thorough character study on the subject of choice and responsibility and undoubtedly an acting test for Mortnensen.

A man whose marriage is on the rocks is visited by his terminally ill twin brother who request that he kills him and once the request is granted the surviving brother decides to take his place and his life, especially when the now deceased twin has revealed where he kept his stash of cash.

With his wife in the city convinced he is dead, a new life starts for him but in doing so he is unaware that the deceased twin was in serious trouble, thus finding himself seriously exposed.

One of the more unusual stories, with a ring of originality to it, with the concepts of option and accountability strongly attached on the plot. Mortensen is brilliant and utterly convincing as a man who evades one life of complication to land onto another one.

Although largely below the radar, this is one of the better films of 2013.
