I think that the previous commenter was on something because the issue of the wig or of the "wax model" of Franka Potente are both ludicrous, and do not exist in the film. Franka is fantastic in her dual role, displaying an emotional range that was both understated and wholly believable. The most interesting and daring aspect of the film was the fact that it did not delve into being a straight-up sci-fi flick. The futuristic aspects were subtle and well-induced to the world of the film. The pop songs that bookend the film reek of cheese but beyond that this is a great film that is worth seeing, if you can find it. I had to get it on Japanese import but it was well worth it. Franka Potente is the cat's meow.
