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.".
While most of the performers speak a Neapolitan dialect, the twins speak a slightly different dialect, that of the small town of Casapesenna. This gives the feeling that they are living in their own separate, intimate world. See more »
A fictionalized story of conjoined late teen female twins who besides having their beauty as an asset also have good singing voices. In Italy they make appearances at various events to sing and to be touched which may sound odd, but if you're quite religious & superstitious (redundant) that act could bring good fortune; solve problems. Story loosely based on an actual pair of early 1900s twins named Daisy & Violet Hilton, but set in the present. Like many conjoined (Siamese twins is a misnomer) twins their income is partly from media or sideshow performances; sometimes being misused as it appears in this movie. The lower rating is not from the acting which was superb, but for the various implausible holes in the scenarios for the girls.
