Extraordinary examination of sexual jealousy in identical twins. Irons plays gynaecologists Elliot and Beverly Mantle, who fall in love with fading actress Claire Niveau when their clinic treats her infertility. As the emotional turmoils mounts up, the trio become involved in a frightening downward spiral of drug-induced mania. Deeply melancholic, irrationally powerful exercise in wayward psychology, which boasts magnificent and carefully differentiated characterisation from Irons.
