Hidden Gem of TIFF 2018
18 September 2018 | by staceyjmaddenSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, and director Laura Luchetti was present.

When I bought my ticket, I had no idea what to expect. I usually see 12 to 15 films over the course of the festival, and buy many of my tickets blindly. Twin Flower was one of those blind purchases. Good thing I did, because it was the best film I saw.

Luchetti adopts a visual style to tell a story about escape and belonging and what it means to want protection, or to provide it for someone else. The two main characters, played by non-actors, have incredibly good chemistry. The bathtub scene is one of the most erotic I've watched in many years. It is tastefully done, and incredibly sexy. During the Q&A after the screening, Luchetti told the audience that some of the scenes were not part of the original script, but just the characters improvising, and they turned out to be some of the most beautiful in the film. I hope this hidden gem gets the attention it deserves!
