A touching and tender tale of conjoined twins searching for their path in life, Indivisibli represents the very best of Italian filmmaking.

De Angelis tackles the issues facing teenage conjoined twins with incredible sensitivity, honesty and tender humour as Indivisibli follows the lives of Daisy and Viola, talented singing sisters who are joined at the hip – literally and metaphorically.

Angela (Daisy) and Marianna (Viola) Fontana give memorable performances; both characters are relatable as average teenage girls facing both the struggles that come with being Siamese twins and the trials of growing up – especially in a piously religious and socio-economically disadvantaged Italian family.

Things are complicated further when a chance meeting with a doctor gives the girls the option of surgical separation. Their relationship comes under great strain as Viola’s internal struggle with the news clashes with Daisy’s anger at their father’s (Massimiliano Rossi) quick dismissal of it. The encounter puts the sisters on different paths, despite still being bound to living life as one.

De Angelis packs an impressive amount of character development into the film, quickly positioning his audience to feel a deep emotional connection to the sisters, while engendering repulsion at other characters intent on impeding their wellbeing and who take advantage of their talent and vulnerability. The authenticity of the sisters’ bond is mesmerizing, and when contrasted with the arrogance and greed that surrounds them, it becomes clear that relationship is powerful enough to overcome adversity.

Beautifully filmed in De Angelis’ unique fly-on-the-wall style, Indivisibli is sure to provide laughter, shock and tears. Expect an easy-to-follow yet imaginative plot that both meets expectations for a coming-of-age film and disrupts and surprises with unwelcome twists. Indivisibli is certainly proof that Italian filmmakers do drama well.

Catch Indivisibli at the Lavazza Italian Film Festival from September 21 – October 11, showing at Luna on SX and Cinema Paradiso. Find out more.
