Growing up together as social outcasts with only each other for
company, twins Elliot and Beverly Mantle become very close. This
closeness becomes more like them both sharing one self in two bodies as
they study in the same area and eventually become experts in the field
of gynaecology. They share everything and few can tell them apart; an
arrangement that works well until Beverly falls for a patient (Claire
Niveau) and finds that there are things he doesn't want to share with
Elliot. As Bev confronts the idea of them being separate for the first
time ever, he starts to fall apart mentally and, when Elliot tries to
reach out and help him he too is drawn into confusion over identity and
an inability to find where one of them stops and the other starts.
Being a Cronenberg film I knew to expect body horror and, shall I say,
an 'unusual' theme and in many ways the film delivered in spades but in
a much more cerebral fashion. The plot is not easy to explain but it is
a totally convincing breakdown of both Elliot and Beverly as they lose
contact with the lines between them (if the lines ever really existed).
Of course it is rather extreme but it is relentlessly interesting in
terms of the script and the characters. The gynaecological part of the
film allows Cronenberg to explore his more usual body horror stuff but
this all came second to the much more interesting material that exists
in the script. Cronenberg appears to be as fascinated as me by the
characters and he directs with a cold eye, letting the creepy
atmosphere come from not only the story but every shot, every set and
every performance; not only this but this is one of his more accessible
films without losing much of what makes Cronenberg Cronenberg.
Of course a massive part of the film working is two perfect
performances from Jeremy Irons, who I have not seen better in any other
films. Using special effects as well as the old 'over the shoulder'
technique, Irons is able to convincingly be on screen in two characters
at the same time, but it is not the shot framing that makes it
convincingly two characters, it is Irons' performance that does that.
His Beverly is so feeble and has a convincing breakdown; while his
Elliot appears much more together but suffers in a different way from
the same struggle. Obviously being identical, it is due to Irons that
the two characters come across so very different but yet seem just like
the same person. In every little scene he manages to stay in character
no matter what it's hard for me to describe, you need to really see
it for yourself. Bujold is good in support early on but, as the twins'
story gets more complex, her characters feels a bit intrusive and
uninteresting, but generally she is good. However, to talk about anyone
beyond this is to suggest there is room for them in the film there
isn't. Instead the film is pretty much dominated by two people and
they are both Jeremy Irons, producing two great performances that were
vital for the film to work.
Overall this may be a little too weird for some viewers but many more
will find it to be one of their favourite Cronenberg films on the basis
that it has the qualities that makes him him but is also a lot more
accessible as well. The body horror is there in the background but it
is the psychological scarring and confusion that is of much more
interest; the script is great even if the plot goes to the usual
Cronenberg excesses but it is two perfect performances by Irons that
makes it all come together in a compelling and interesting film.
