News & Interviews for Three Identical Strangers
Critic Reviews for Three Identical Strangers
The cliché "stranger than fiction" is probably used a little too freely, but this really is that.
It combines interviews, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions to take us as close in to the story as possible, not coming to any conclusions. You won't be able to look away.
This haunting documentary uncovers as much of the truth as is possible.
It never loses sight of the three scarred subjects at the core of the tale, and of the sense of profound injustice inflicted on blameless children. Unmissable.
Entertaining and stimulating as it generally is, Wardle's film keeps bumping its head on a ceiling, conceptually speaking.
Director Wardle and his team have an astonishing story to tell. They tackle it in relatively conventional and restrained fashion with talking head interviews, one or two dramatic reconstructions and clever use of archive.
Audience Reviews for Three Identical Strangers
I honestly don't know why anyone would find this story so amazing and incredible - a story that is actually filled with vague speculation and moralizing about the separation of twin babies - but what I find really unbelievable is how these boys became famous just because of that.
The last three or so minutes of this thing will get you despite it dragging slightly from moment to moment in the last half hour. Utterly, utterly fascinating stuff here that is as much about nature versus nurture as it is context, context, context. To this point, the editing is outstanding. Hesitant to say much more about it as I knew little to nothing walking in and came out completely chilled and rather mystified. Will certainly come back to this again (and probably again & again). Cannot stop thinking about it.
It gets a little too saccharine in some of its conclusions, especially when you consider all the dark turns the narrative takes, but perhaps that is an effort to rebuke the cruelty inflicted on these people. Regardless its a compelling narrative.
