The film shows the parallel destinies of these two young men who look alike without knowing it. They share the same values and the same desire for the absolute. They could be friends. And yet ... "We've all been in our lives through a phase where we thought the world belonged to us. The very fact of becoming an adult means that you realize that this would be a little more complicated". (Stephan Streker, director) The film begins with the stab of a knife, and yes, we already know that the film will end with the same stabbing... The story tells us that ordinary lives could be as dangerous as extraordinary lives and, it may seem conflicting, that extraordinary lives could be as simple as ordinary lives at the same time. A movie, as the director says, that leaves the viewer intelligent and free and, I dare add, that will make you "think" in the strong sense of the word. A very good film that is worth to be seen!
