Interesting concept, but has its flaws . . .
Briefly, the story evolves around the concept of clones, and a situation is conjured up as a sort of platform to deliver a plot theme centered on this arena of potential ethical questions.
It could have been a fantastically compelling film, but just didn't quite get there.
No spoilers here, so it's a bit difficult to focus on some of the key elements which are the demise of this effort.
What stood out the most, perhaps, was the absurdly overdone emotional moments of the key clone character(s), which came off as just being syrupy, like emotional molasses oozing out of the screen.
I know, it was supposed to represent the emotional neediness and psychological challenges of the main character(s), but it just came off painfully slow and pedantic.
Just a wee bit too much on the self absorbed delusionary role playing . . . and a bit light on the actual functionality of the overall plot premise.
Perhaps this might be remade somewhere in the future, with a different treatment.
The concept is certainly interesting . . . but this version, well . . .
