"My Brother's Name Is Robert and He Is an Idiot" by Philip Gröning
Summer heat. A petrol station in the countryside, cornfields, wind and distant mountains. The twins Robert and Elena lie in the grass and prepare for Elena's A-level paper in philosophy. For 48 hours, the summer meadow, a forest, a lake are their universe. For 48 hours, the petrol station is their only contact with the outside world. 48 hours to break away from childhood and the symbiosis of the twin world. Twin games, bets, conversations about philosophy. And the more they struggle to get away from each other, the more they are drawn into their shared world. When the weekend is over and the sun rises again over the petrol station, nothing is as it was before.
Being too much one to be two.
And not enough to be one to stay one.
End of childhood.
End of the world.
