Her daughter Siri, whom, in this way, she turns into her virtual twin, learns as a child that she is the world's first cloned human being. In fact a blueprint: a blueprint of her mother.

Cheesy movie with nothing to say (Watch Never Let Me Go Instead)
13 March 2012 | by nascenttSee all my reviews

The premise interests me, and Potente is a great actress. But it was a very disappointing film. The concept, overly simple, the sci-fi element is toned down as much as possible, and while it tries to focus on the idea that the clone would reach a point in life where it wanted to be it's own person, the concept has been done before, and far far better than this.

The clone's rebelling in this film is pathetic, the dynamic of the relationships is poor. There is no philosophical element to the film.

All the characters are frightfully shallow, even the 'mother' and 'daughter' characters. I haven't read the original novel, but the film has no depth at all. Siri has no personality, so the idea that she wanted to be herself instead of her 'mother' doesn't come across well at all, and while Potente actually does a decent performance, the direction, script and aimless flashbacks say very little in a long amount of time. I've seen short films say with this the premise in a few minutes than this film did in just under two hours.

For anyone that wants to watch a more fleshed out, recent, full-length film with the same premise. Never Let Me Go (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1334260/) might be a better choice.
