Storyline

Lars lives a life dedicated to his disabled mother and his job at a petrol station. The only light in his life is Julie, who lives in the same building as he does, and who often comes by the petrol station. One day when Julie faints at his feet, Lars decides to seize the opportunity and take her home. When Julie wakes up confused and in denial, she believes that Lars is her dead boyfriend, Soren. Lars now has to decide whether he wants to help Julie back to reality or let her remain in the belief that he is her boyfriend. Lars chooses to become Soren. For the first time in his life he focuses on himself and his own hopes and dreams for the future. Soon Lars and Julie disappear into their own closed and happy world, where only they know the rules. Lars' mother and Julie's parents fight to bring their grown up children back to reality. Simultaneously Lars and Julie fight the forces trying to separate them. Until a magic moment when they decide to escape. Written by Anonymous

Silence is gold
7 December 2003 | by nickvalSee all my reviews

Lars has dedicated his life to two things, his job at a local gas station and his old mother who won't let the social workers take care of her, cause as she puts it "no one can take better care of me than you (Lars)" Lars falls in love with the girl downstairs who wakes up after a passout(a result of a (possible) brain damage she recieved in the carcrash where her boyfriend Søren was killed) and thinks that Lars is Søren. Lars pretends to be Søren to be close to Julie, but soon both his mother and Julie parents starts to get involved in the affair. Tvilling is directed by Hans Fabian Wullenweber, who also directed the succesfull movie "Klatretøsen". He has created a movie that seems to be a standard piece of social realism but turns out to be a unique movie. The camera is offend turned 90 or 180 degrees and intensive filming is making every little scene special. There is very little dialog in movie, instead everything is expressed through the actors body language and the actors manage to do it in a subliminal way. The "missing" dialog is throughout the movie replaced with great instrumental music. The story of Social disabled Lars, who is caught up between the physical disabled Mother and the mental disabled Julie is very interesting and told in cynical way, that creates a movie without one single doll moment, this is the best danish languaged movie since Festen (The Celebration).
