Storyline

In a dark and fertile womb, fate fuses the bodies of two siblings from the thorax, all the way down to the lower belly. Despite the difficulties of this extremely rare phenomenon, the brothers seem to share a nearly normal life, however, by man's intervention, the conjoined twins will be separated unexpectedly, disrupting the imperfect, still successful balance in their life. Is this new and autonomous life as individuals what the twins have been dreaming of, or is the yearning for their long-lost connection still unsatisfied? Written by Nick Riganas

Stunning
17 October 2006 | by dannenvance-1See all my reviews

The use of the word "breathtaking" should be reserved for things such as this. My wife and I watched this short film as part of the compilation "Small Gauge Trauma". We were both in awe of the intensity of this film. Few and far between are the pieces of art that achieve perfection. This is one of them, equaling and perhaps even surpassing in it's complexity the short film "More" by Mark Osborne. Do yourself a favor and see this film. Share it with others. Although be sure to know your audience. You could scare some people away by too strongly endorsing this in mixed company as it is truly a very exceptional, read as weird/strange/creepy, piece.
