Dutch family-oriented filmmaker Ben Sombogaart directs De Tweeling (Twin Sisters), based on the best-selling novel by Tessa de Loo. Using black-and-white and color film stocks to establish the interwoven time periods, the story concerns twin sisters who grow up during WWII. In 1926, orphans Lotte and Anna are separated and forbidden to contact each other. Lotte is taken by a Dutch couple to recover from tuberculosis and Anna is sent to work on a farm in Germany. Right before the war starts, the cultured young Lotte (Thekla Reuten) marries the nice Jewish boy David (Jeroen Spitzenberger) in Holland. Meanwhile, hard-working young Anna (Nadja Uhl) becomes a maid and marries Austrian officer Martin (Roman Knizka). When the war breaks out, both sisters lose their men and develop a spiteful animosity toward each other. Eventually, as two old ladies in a beauty parlor, Lotte (Ellen Vogel) and Anna (Gudrun Okras) are finally able to settle their differences. -- Andrea LeVasseur (
