Who would have thought that a second Angie might be hiding behind a Lübeck housewife? Or that a stay at home mom would profit from her resemblance to the Chancellor? Director Douglas Wolfsperger (BRUNDIBAR REVISITED) looks at the phenomenon of doubles by portraying two Angela Merkel look-a-likes. The question: how the temporarily assuming a second identity define one's perception of oneself? underscores the documentary DOUBLE LIFE – THE MOVIE. Wolfsperger's camera captures comic and sometimes absurd moments, sudden successes as well as setbacks, without getting too close or using them as a joke. "Once again, Douglas Wolfsperger convinces us with a documentary whose theme comes from life." (Kino-zeit.de)
