Leo (Michael Hayden) has been in a coma for quite some time, and it's less than likely that he'll ever awaken - so his loving wife Josie (Rosie Fellner), looking for a way to keep her husband alive, agrees to the suggestion of Dr. Jameson (Michael Gill) to give birth to his clone. But once the clone's alive and kicking, the inconceivable happens: Leo comes out of his coma ... and that's where the problems start, it seems Leo and the baby have aggressive reactions to one another because they have to share the same soul. Things get so bad that Leo and Josie decide to get rid of the baby - and violently so ...

23 years later: Leo is by now a successful architect, and Josie still his loving wife. They have never had another baby, but they do own a dog now who's devoted to them - until he runs away with Eddie (Noah Fleiss), a random young surfer doing his thing at a nearby beach. When Leo and Josie retrieve the dog, their confrontation with Eddie almost turns violent - but the next day, Eddie turns up at their house to apologize, and while Leo's not home, Josie out of the blue hires him to fix their well - much to Leo's dismay, as it soon turns out the two men can't stand each other's guts. However, Josie feels drawn to the young man, so much so that she eventually has sex with Eddie behind Leo's back, but when he wants more, she pushes him away. Of course, Eddie eventually finds out he's actually Noah's clone, who has been saved by Dr. Jameson without Leo and Josie's knowledge - which of course explains a lot but also pushes things downhill with no breaks attached ...

 

So ok, the concept of a shared soul might need quite a bit of suspension of disbelief, especially for those not really into the concept of souls to begin with, but that hardly hurts the movie that's not really into the religious side of things. And sure, Patient 001 might be a bit slowburn in its narrative build-up - but that only helps to heighten the tension more and more until it erupts in the finale. Also, of course it's rather easy to guess Eddie is indeed the clone, way before the film gives this away, but again that only works in favour of tension and suspense. And of course, a tight directorial effort and strong performances by all involved really help to make this one a pretty cool movie.
