Storyline

Jonathan and John are brothers, yet they share the same body. Life was routine for both of them; Jonathan gets the first half of the day (7:00 AM to 7:00 PM) and John gets the other half (7:00 PM to 7:00 AM). Everything starts to shift when Jonathan realizes that John has a girlfriend and now wants so much more than this shared life.

Quotes

[first lines]
Jonathan: [sits down in front of camera and turns it on] Hi. Work was good. I left on time. I think the new woman, Alison, might like me. I don't know, she keeps trying to talk to me. They started me on plans for a new house in Greenwich; ten thousand square feet, can you imagine? No one needs that much living space.

WOW! I WILL REMEMBER THIS MOVIE FOR A LONG TIME.
17 November 2018 | by markwiseman5-988-103207See all my reviews

This is a "thinking-man's sci-fi movie." If you appreciate such things, you will definitely not be disappointed.

If you are in the mood for drama, with a little bit of sci-fi, this is for you. Or, you are a deep thinker - because this movie really made me stop and think - about many important questions regarding life, relationships, lies, trust, loss...

I rated this movie so highly because, as far as I know, it's really something original, something different, for a change. I'm sure there's other movies and stories out there which are similar, but I consume a lot of media and can't really think of anything like this.

I highly recommend watching this movie - and, no, I was not a part of the cast or production team. :)
