Isabella Rossellini plays an international cover girl (big stretch there) who falls for her therapist, Aidan Quinn. Then she finds out her gentle lover has a warped mirror image: an identical twin (Quinn again) who is cruel and manipulative.

Costarring in this dull and artlessly acted thriller are Claudia Christian and Iman, the fashion model who is David Bowie's current companion. It's not so much that Lies of the Twins telegraphs its plot. The problem is that it doesn't really have much of a plot. Once Rossellini's attraction/repulsion for the abusive brother is established, the movie has no idea what to do with itself.
