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.

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.
Jonathan: Let's see, what else? Oh, I ran into Sarah in the lobby, and I helped her with er groceries. So in case you see her, that's why she loves you so much. I made the rest of the ...

Original, questioning and strange
18 November 2018 | by funambulineSee all my reviews

It's not that often that I don't really know what to think about a movie. The technical part is really enjoyable. The synopsis strange and mysterious. We enter little by little, day to day, in the reality of Jonathan and we understand very slowly what this reality means. It's dark. But not really sad. It's complex. The movie doesn't try to simplify or over explain it, which is great. But also left me with too much questioning to be at ease. I don't know if the ending is great and really smart, or a bit dull. I don't know. And it's fine.

And perhaps this movie is great because of this: it leaves you with more questions than answers.
