  • Summary: The story of Blake and Francis Falls, conjoined twins whose lives are as enigmatic as their unique appearance. In an eccentric hotel peopled with odd characters, the brothers dwell quietly. Then a beautiful young woman enters their lives, and for the first time someone sees the brothers' world from the inside. She makes them think of possibilities when they're certain there aren't any. They start to wonder how it would be to feel complete in new ways. (Sony Pictures Classics) Expand

  1. 100
    In its quiet, dark, claustrophobic way, this is one of the best films of the year.
  2. A gentle, beautifully realized tale of love and intimacy...It moved me to tears.
  3. 88
    Never shies from acknowledging the natural fascination with their abnormalities.
  4. 70
    Entrancing, uncommonly compassionate film.
  5. 67
    It is only once the movie has exhausted its roster of "weird" notions and contrived images that it finds its emotional footing, leaving you with one half of a lovely, woebegone film.
  6. If you're in the mood for something strange, this film may please you, twice over.
  7. 50
    While the film's mood is dreamy, dark, and gentle, it's also very slow and seldom leads to much of a intellectual or emotional payoff.
