Unfolding like a fairytale, Indivisibili is the story of eighteen year-old conjoined twins who entertain to support their family. The lives of the talented sisters are transformed into a novelty act; part religious, part superstitions. Myths grow around them. They are beautiful to look at and heavenly to listen to. But it is the intimate, human dimension of the girls' lives that are truly engaging. One dreams of independence and the other cannot imagine a life without her sister. when the possibility of separation is introduced, their entire world is thrown into turmoil. The story of Daisy and Viola is heartfelt, accessible and beguiling; transmitting a magical, often surreal atmosphere yet firmly grounded in Neapolitan universe. Here magic, the occult and corruption are indeed real. The young actors (Angela and Marianna Fontana) are real life identical twins. Their performances are extraordinary; for their nuanced characters, singing and authenticity. Music by Neapolitan legend Enzo Avitabile conveys an unmistakable sense of place. As a Neapolitan, this film is one of my favourites in this years selection.
