Off-beat is a description scarcely adequate to describe this highly-original Italian comedy-drama that takes place within a woman's womb and centers on the conversations between two developing fraternal twins, known only as Big Guy and Little Guy. The fetuses are played by long-haired grown men who wear beads and have are strategically covered by their umbilical cords. Each of the embryos has a distinct personality complete with built in fears of the strange world awaiting them outside. Big Guy is the aggressive brute who resents having to share his watery home with Little Guy, the intellectual one. Little Guy is small enough to climb up into his mother's fallopian tubes where a peephole allows him some view of the world. He can even watch TV. Armed with such information, he visits Big Guy and together they talk about it all. Sometimes when they sleep, both have fantastic dreams of meeting their beautiful mother.
