THE DEVIL’S DOU­BLE ( MA)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - EGuide Dvds -

Stars: Do­minic Cooper, Lu­di­vine Sag­nier

Di­rec­tor: Lee Tama­hori

Avail­able: Now on DVD and BD The story of one man be­com­ing an­other should be a mighty com­pelling one and when that man is an Iraqi lieu­tenant and the man he is trans­formed into to serve as his dou­ble is chief Iraqi nut­ter Uday Hus­sein, well that should be un­miss­able. It’s a shame, then, that this tale, which is based on Latif Yahia’s book, isn’t much of a study. Uday’s well doc­u­mented ex­cesses and bru­tal­ity take up most of the screen time, the rest is just melo­drama – though Do­minic Cooper does give good ser­vice in the dual roles of both Uday and Latif.
