FULL SYNOPSIS

Director Jean-Pierre Gorin follows up a news story in this interesting documentary on twin girls, ten years old, who speak to each other in their own language. The girls are shown speaking to each other here, and Gorin has sessions with their therapists, their family, and the specialists who work with the twins. This instance of a language created out of whole cloth is certainly unusual if not unique. The twins' grandmother speaks only German, and their mother speaks both English and German, yet it is postulated that since the girls grew up hearing a variety of languages as their parents moved from place to place, they may have inadvertently been stimulated them to create their own language. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
