A clerk in a government agency finds his unenviable life takes a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and seductive with women.
Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simons exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simons horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.Written by

I would advise anyone who is thinking of watching this film to do a lot of research into this film before you go and see it. Whilst directed and produced beautifully it was possibly one of the most depressing and (unfortunately) tedious movies ever.
By the time the credits began to roll only half the audience remained.. The rest had walked out at various points throughout the film, not exactly withholding what they actually thought of the film. To say I personally was disappointed is an understatement, I was expecting far fa better, especially considering the cast and director. However, I do understand other reviewers comments, and would still advise you to give it a go if you've looked into it.
