Gemini is adapted from the Edogawa Rampo short story ‘The Twins’, Shinya Tsukamoto’s (Tetsuo, Tokyo Fist) modernist Meiji horror represents the director’s first foray into period films and fleshes out Rampo’s original tale of savage sibling rivalry considerably.
Yukio (Masahiro Motoki) is living a charmed life: he is a respected young doctor with a successful practice and a beautiful wife. His only problem is that his wife is suffering from amnesia, and her past is unknown. Things begin to fall apart, however, when both his parents die suddenly, killed by a mysterious stranger with Yukio’s face. Only when Yukio confronts this stranger will the mystery of his identity, and his wife’s past, be revealed.
Gemini is released on bluray and digital on November 2nd, 2020. You can pre-order HERE.
