Tracking down Adam, she finds for herself the extent of their resemblance. The two women share some physical attributes, but they are not doubles; Helen is pregnant. Are the two men identical twin brothers, unbeknownst to them?

When we left the press screening, my female companion said she detected a note of misogyny as neither man is a sensitive or responsive partner to the significant woman in his life.

All I can say that the next two day, I revisited two films about duality and metamorphosis, both masterworks: Faura, Niv Fichman Executive producers: Nicolas Bolduc Production designer: Danny Bensi, Saunder Jurriaans Editor: Anthony demands Adam's clothes and car keys in order to get things even by taking out Mary for a romantic weekend getaway, promising to disappear forever afterward.
Adam complies, and Anthony takes Mary to the hotel after work. Meanwhile, Adam in retaliation goes to Anthony's apartment and is immediately recognized by the apartment concierge, who lets him in without the keys but also desperately asks if 'Anthony' could take him back to the underground sex club again.

Adam is trying to adjust as Anthony in front of Helen but she doesn't appear to notice the subtle differences or his shy behavior and asks him to join her in bed.

She forces Anthony to drive her home; the two get into a fight in the car which results in a high-speed crash and the car being totaled, the passengers presumably both dead. The next day, Adam dresses in Anthony's clothes and opens the confidential letter received earlier from the agency and finds the underground-club key, given only to select members. Helen gets out of the shower and tells him to call his mother, then enters the bedroom. Adam asks Helen if she is doing anything that night and tells her that he's going out, but she doesn't respond.
