Gemini. 2014. Philippines. Directed by Ato Bautista. With Sheena McBride, Brigitte McBride Bonus, Mon Confiado. In Filipino; English subtitles. 83 min.
Julia is tormented by old demons. When she looks into the mirror, she sees not herself but her identical twin, Judith. Speaking to a detective, she recounts memories of interdependence, twin rivalry, and a gruesome murder. Switching between black-and-white and color imagery awash in a chilling bluish tone, director Ato Bautista takes us on a hallucinatory ride through a mindscape filled with mysteries and trauma. Real-life identical twins Sheena McBride and Brigitte McBride Bonus put on stellar performances as the indistinguishable Julia and Judith in this bloodcurdling tale of twin horror.
