A Double Souffle

France, 1985 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Fernand Berenguer

Strikingly photographed psychodrama about twin brothers who become separated during an exercise run. But although Jim exists in John's mind, did he (does he?) ever exist in reality? Shades of The Other and Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari.
