Kennington Noir Presents The Dark Mirror (1946) directed by Robert Siodmak and starring Olivia de Havilland.
A man is found murdered, with witnesses convinced about the woman they saw leaving his apartment. However, it becomes apparent that the woman has a twin, and it seems impossible to find out which one of them is actually the man’s killer.
Olivia de Havilland, in her only film noir role, plays both of the twins under suspicion.
“Almost Bach-like in its play with symmetry and counterpoint.” Senses of Cinema review.
16mm film presentation. Plus supporting programme.
