With Jeremy Irons, Genevieve Bujold, Heidi Von Palleske
Directed by David Cronenberg

David Cronenberg's sexually charged intrigue with the human body enters a new era. Odd genius twins Elliot & Beverly Mantle become highly sought after gynaecologists and fertility experts. The one is the playboy, accepting the awards and wooing the ladies while the other is the introverted bookworm. The classic good and evil twin scenario get a great twist as the psychological make-up and intense bond of the brothers start to unravel. This pre-digital film did a great job of fusing Irons in both roles with the (then new) motion control technology.
