Storyline

Carolina Rambaldi isn't fulfilled by her three children: Marcello, a lazy do-nothing, Lucrezia, a bossy type who produces a TV show, and Cesare, homosexual and malicious, who's a sociologist. When she writes her will, Carolina leaves her property to the one child who's married and had a child in the past year and a half. Cesare and Lucrezia are furious with her demands, since they're incapable of meeting them. Marcello, on the other hand, marries a dangerous killer called Marina. Marina gets pregnant right away but unfortunately has a miscarriage. She discovers that there's a clinic in Germany that specializes in embryo transplants for sterile women. She convinces her twin sister Angela to take her place while she flies to Germany to have the operation. But Cesare finds out about her plan and causes an explosion on the airplane Marina is travelling on. So Angela goes to Germany to have the transplant that Marina was scheduled for. Written by france

Double impact (vhs)
11 September 2017 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

It's the turn to la Bellucci to play twins.

This early movie in her career is however maybe her all time best effort in acting: for one time, she did something else than the sexy, apathetic, silent woman with no pulse or dialogues! Indeed here, she plays a dark sister seducing a rich heir and also her good heart twin as backup. As bad critics would think, it's not just about wardrobe changes and i had the real feeling that there were 2 Monica. The story is funny and the director makes poetry and fairy tale with nothing... I wish i could have watched it in french or with subtitles. So that's a great movie paradox: Monicas was amazing as long as she was a newcomer learning the ropes and rules and disastrous as she reached fame!
