Peter Budinský "Twins" (2011)

There is no denying that Twins, from Slovakian director Peter Budinský, is a very humorous work but it has a dark side to it, quite apart from the physical monochrome look of the five minute film. Peter's characters are conjoined twins, one much bigger than the other. They earn their living in the boxing ring. The two share everything, including a woman, in a scene more graphically explicit than most. The pair are not only different in physique, they are unlike each other in temperament. The walrus moustached one is something of a bully, inside the boxing ring and out, his victim inevitably being his twin. So there is much ribald humour as big guy beats little guy to the huge merriment of the crowd which in turn induces an even more frenzied assault. Of course, there is only so much a worm can take before turning. Twins, however, is an uncomfortable film in some ways with a very striking conclusion. And no turning. Indeed the film is full of startling images all represented in the director's idiosyncratic style. In its scrutiny of man's alter ego,  Patrik Pass's screenplay also explores the extremes of brotherly love. This excellent film certainly grows on you as it progresses, the subtlety of the action transcending the brusk appearance. Born in 1983, Peter trained in Bratislava and Brussels. He organises the splendid FestAnča.
