A man manages to make an exact duplicate of himself. The double is alike in every way, except he succeeds in all things the man tries to achieve but fails at miserably. Jacob (Pierre Clementi) watches as his double seduces women, dominates opponents and wins at everything he tries to do. The two clash over politics, art, morality and women (Stefania Sandrelli and Tina Aumont). The question is raised if change is good for the development of humankind, why are revolutions so bloody?

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Aggressively 'new wave.'"
‑ , Time Out
"More than just a storytelling stunt, it's a fraught, revealing portrait of a brand-crazed and emotionally arrested society."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"The specific meaning of many of the scenes is obscure, but the total effect is that of youthful explosion of movie talent."
‑ Nora Sayre, New York Times
"Partner's unchained energy and its willingness to raise questions and even provide some answers still make for compelling viewing."
‑ , Film4
"Bernardo Bertolucci's third and seldom-shown feature is very much a reflection of its period -- 1968 -- but no less fascinating for that."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
