Identical twin brothers Mark Polish and Michael Polish have written, directed, and starred in an emotional romance about a prostitute who falls in love with Siamese twins. The Polish Brothers play the conjoined twins Blake and Francis Falls, who are joined at the chest and thus share many vital organs.

As a birthday present to themselves, they hire a pretty young prostitute named Penny Michele Hicks to comfort them in their dark hotel room. Turned off at first, Penny eventually sees beyond… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What makes it so haunting is the sensitivity to its lead characters and their unusual plight."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The Polish brothers make an auspicous debut, and establish a tone -- like it or not, they've delivered on it since then."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"The film got caught up too much in the tragedy of the twin's life without coming up with much more than heavy symbolism for its answers."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"an air of mystery - not a whodunit mystery, but a deeper, internal mystery of the spirit and the soul"
‑ Arthur Lazere,
"A small, poignant gem despite its laggardly pacing. Definitely an off-beat, side show attraction, but with three big rings of heart, character, and soul."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"shares its themes with Dead Ringers and A Zed & Two Noughts, even if it is not as disturbing as the former, as downright weird as the latter, or as intelligent as either."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Beautiful, hypnotic film about Siamese twin brothers."
‑ Beth Accomando,
"A sad, fascinating, and profoundly moving portrait of two individuals who have learned, not by choice, to live together."
‑ David N. Butterworth,
"The Polishes aim to find what a union between two people really means and demands, and their film is surprisingly gentle, heartfelt and sweet."
‑ Peter Henne, Film Journal International
"Nothing much happens, but we go on a journey just the same..."
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"Shares some themes with Lynch's The Elephant Man."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"...straddles the stylistic gulf between David Lynch and the Coen brothers. It is a creepy film, beautiful in odd and disturbing ways."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Twin Falls Idaho is flawed in many ways but its virtues also cannot be denied."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"A movie as compelling and unusual as its subject."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
