Best documentary I have seen in a long while
- Three Identical Strangers review by JG
Whether you will like this as much as I did depends upon your interests. I rate this higher than Snowdon, though perhaps that is more important to most people as it affects our lives in this "modern" world.
This film is cleverly constructed, it starts out as an incredible story, who would believe this happened in real life. It is told by two of the brothers in a way that draws you in to learn about this amazimg cooincedence. The story then expands out into what they discover about their circumstances. The film takes you on a somewhat parallel journey that they must have had. From bewilderent, through joy on to wondering and ending on incomprehension.
This is an important documentary that, like the Snowdon one, needed to be made. If you are interested in the Nurture verses Nature question, saw the documentary Das Experiment about the Stanford Prison Experiment (see wikipedia) or have knowledge of any of the Nazi experiments relating to Eugenics then this is a must see, but otherwise the documentary is well made so that anyone can watch this without delving too deeply into the moral questions it raises.
