A story of class systems
6 July 2007 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This story absorbed me from the beginning. Hu Die, who plays both sisters, was very good. There is a scene in which she, as the poor sister, is very conflicted about something (I don't want to give it away). The camera offers a closeup of her. What made me interested is how she plays that scene. There is anguish in her look. I think she is superb in this film. I think the movie is somewhat predictable, but that did not bother me. What did bother me is something I can't control-the pretty poor quality of the movie itself. This film is paired on DVD with the 1937 Street Angel (also a score of 8 out of 10, but Twin Sisters gets my nod for being the better of the two) and that film's quality of print is even worse. I guess this is the best we're going to get. This film is about the different class systems then and now (specifically rich/poor) and, while its been done many times, this is worth a look.
