Movie Info

Identical twin brothers Mark Polish and Michael Polish have written, directed, and starred in an emotional romance about a prostitute who falls in love with Siamese twins. The Polish Brothers play the conjoined twins Blake and Francis Falls, who are joined at the chest and thus share many vital organs. They have come to the big city to find their long-lost mother and end their suffering once and for all. As a birthday present to themselves, they hire a pretty young prostitute named Penny Michele

What makes it so haunting is the sensitivity to its lead characters and their unusual plight.

shares its themes with Dead Ringers and A Zed & Two Noughts, even if it is not as disturbing as the former, as downright weird as the latter, or as intelligent as either.

Shares some themes with Lynch's The Elephant Man.

The Polish brothers make an auspicous debut, and establish a tone -- like it or not, they've delivered on it since then.

Beautiful, hypnotic film about Siamese twin brothers.

...straddles the stylistic gulf between David Lynch and the Coen brothers. It is a creepy film, beautiful in odd and disturbing ways.

The film got caught up too much in the tragedy of the twin's life without coming up with much more than heavy symbolism for its answers.

A sad, fascinating, and profoundly moving portrait of two individuals who have learned, not by choice, to live together.

Twin Falls Idaho is flawed in many ways but its virtues also cannot be denied.

an air of mystery - not a whodunit mystery, but a deeper, internal mystery of the spirit and the soul

The Polishes aim to find what a union between two people really means and demands, and their film is surprisingly gentle, heartfelt and sweet.

A movie as compelling and unusual as its subject.

A small, poignant gem despite its laggardly pacing. Definitely an off-beat, side show attraction, but with three big rings of heart, character, and soul.

Audience Reviews for Twin Falls Idaho

Is an unusual movie. Its true, what you remember after the movie ends is the twins whispering in each other's ears.

Not a bad movie. The twins were fun to watch. Overall I don't give it more because I didn't connect with anyone, and I felt like I was supposed be emotional at the end and wasn't.

Extremely compelling and intriguing. It's a haunting film, but not in an unwatchable way. It's haunting in mmore of a darkly poetic way. What makes it watchable is the fact that it doesn't seek to be exploitative and disturbing in a David Lynch sort of way. This is a very interesting subject for a debut film, and a really good debut at that. The acting, especially from the three leads is really impressive, and is to be commended. This is not a film for all tastes, as there is a lack here of what most mainstream audiences crave for in a film, but as a moody, brooding, tragic love story indie/art house piece, Twin Falls Idaho succeeds immensely.
