Twin boys who do everything together, from collecting beetles to feeding stray cats, welcome their mother home after her reconstructive surgery. But with her face wrapped in bandages, and her demeanor distant, they grow suspicious of her identity.
Imbued with uncanny feelings about twins and doppelgängers, Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz’s haunting vision—their narrative feature debut—is one of the best horror films of the 2010s. This unnerving domestic psychological fairy tale from Austria was recently remade in the US with Naomi Watts.
