An ogre keeps in his castle two children, whom he intends to eat. A knight and his companion will try to save them, and will be assisted by the ogre's wife, who thus will also get rid of her husband. A medieval story in contemporary settings.
Daisy and Violet are twin sisters on the verge of turning 18. They are blessed with beautiful voices and are sought after to sing at weddings, communions and baptisms. Their real draw is another trait which cloaks them in fascinating charm: they are siamese twins. They support their family with their singing like a well oiled company/entertainment machine. This idyllic situation ends when a notable English doctor sees them at a first communion in Casertavecchia. He sentences them to the possibility of a normal life when he states, "I can separate you.".
2 young conjoined twin sisters live their life as local scene freaky phenomenon and singing stars, managed by their ignorant and irresponsible parents. As they grow up one of them starts questioning their situation and the fragile balance falls apart.
Let's start with what I found to be the weak point of the movie: the script. One of the main characters (the "impresario" Gaetano Bruno who does a good job with what he's provided with) is unbelievable and his plot line is too predictable simply for the sake of the drama. Unfortunately this is only the major example: a lot of times a great acting performance barely covers the weakness of the context in which the plot throws the actors.
If you can deal with this, you will experience a sweet love story and you will see the appalling conditions in which people still live in one of the "advanced economies" of the world.
Good photography and very good music choices: a couple of songs from Neapolitan songwriter Enzo Avitabile are as decadent and beautiful as it gets.
