Lars has dedicated his life to two things, his job at a local gas station and his old mother who won't let the social workers take care of her, cause as she puts it "no one can take better care of me than you (Lars)" Lars falls in love with the girl downstairs who wakes up after a passout(a result of a (possible) brain damage she recieved in the carcrash where her boyfriend Søren was killed) and thinks that Lars is Søren. Lars pretends to be Søren to be close to Julie, but soon both his mother and Julie parents starts to get involved in the affair. Tvilling is directed by Hans Fabian Wullenweber, who also directed the succesfull movie "Klatretøsen". He has created a movie that seems to be a standard piece of social realism but turns out to be a unique movie. The camera is offend turned 90 or 180 degrees and intensive filming is making every little scene special. There is very little dialog in movie, instead everything is expressed through the actors body language and the actors manage to do it in a subliminal way. The "missing" dialog is throughout the movie replaced with great instrumental music. The story of Social disabled Lars, who is caught up between the physical disabled Mother and the mental disabled Julie is very interesting and told in cynical way, that creates a movie without one single doll moment, this is the best danish languaged movie since Festen (The Celebration).
