Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Inspired by their 2007 memoir, "The Power Of Two" offers an intimate portrayal of the bond between half-Japanese twin sisters Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, their battle with the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF) and miraculous survival through double lung transplants. Defying all odds, Ana and Isa have emerged as authors, athletes and global advocates for organ donation, and their connection to the CF and transplant communities provides rare insight into the struggles - and overlooked joys - of chronic illness.

This is an inspirational story very well told.

They went to Japan to try to show them how much something like this could really affect someone's life.

This documentary really stuck with me. I've been fortunate enough to have spent 22 healthy years on earth and no one close close to me has ever been really been significantly ill. Seeing Ana and Isa tell their story about living with cystic fibrosis really opened my eyes to the reality of living with a life threatening disease. Of course I knew about the sadness that might come with being so ill but what really surprised me and inspired me is the joy, optimism and gratitude these twins possess in spite of (or perhaps because of) their disease.

Their commitment to give back after receiving their life-giving lung transplants should be an inspiration to us all. Like I said, I'm perfectly healthy but I have yet to accomplish anything as great as what the Stenzel twins have in their transplant advocacy.

So many of us (myself included) take good health for granted. But as they say in the film, without good health it's really impossible to accomplish anything. After seeing "The Power of Two" I'm going to commit myself to gratitude everyday. I will not take my good health for granted any longer!

The subject of transplantation is one that is near to my heart. I know in some circles it might still be considered controversial, but I feel that it constitutes the ultimate gift that one individual can give another. After my death (or brain death), I welcome the opportunity to have my body given to medicine where I might make a substantial difference in the lives of others. Of course, at this rate, I will likely be too unhealthy and decrepit to make much impact! But isn't it the thought that counts? Marc Smolowitz's stirring documentary "The Power of Two" tells the tale of twin sisters born with cystic fibrosis. At a young age, Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes inadvertently became a popular human interest news story by writing and illustrating a children's book about their time in and out of hospitals. This unexpected focus brought the half-Japanese sisters a new purpose. Over the next twenty plus years, they have endured transplants, medical setbacks, and personal triumphs to become active advocates of the transplantation process.

More than anything, "The Power of Two" is a lovely tribute to everyone involved in this medical miracle. From donors to recipients to those on waiting lists to the families involved to the caregivers and doctors, this film is all inclusive in its respect and attention. And the Stenzel sisters embody this respect greatly. Told in a relatively matter-of-fact way, I appreciate how grounded this film stays. Yes, it's an emotional subject but I never felt like anyone was trying to manipulate my emotions. The interviews are from the heart, touching, and many make you smile with genuine affection.

Simply put, this documentary describes some of the lowest lows and highest highs associated with long-term suffering of a horrible disease (cystic fibrosis) and the subsequent treatment via lung transplantation. Although the twin sisters are extraordinary individuals, there are still lessons to be learned for anyone afflicted with chronic illness. The film is about pain, focus, endurance, joy, love, and....life. In the case of organ donation and transplantation, the stories of donors as told through their families brings home the amazing gifts that donors share. This is one of the most powerfully true stories I have ever seen.

My daughter is in the end stage of the terrible disease of cystic fibrosis. She saw THE POWER OF TWO at a special showing and reception attended by one of the twins. Their story gave her and our son-in-law much reason for optimism in her own case, while also providing much useful and inspiring information. It's an excellent documentary and has helped me to better understand what my daughter will be experiencing upon being accepted as a double-lung transplant recipient.

This video was incredibly well done. Having been the spouse of a person with CF for 37 years, I cried throughout the video remembering what we went through. My husband survived 7 years with his transplanted lungs. I recommend this video to everyone as a tool to learn about CF and what these amazing people go through to live. I continue to pray for a cure. Diane Detmer, widow.Power of Two

This documentary was well done. I was familiar with cystic fibrosis but this DVD provided further education. I was not aware of the cultural differences regarding transplants in Japan before watching this DVD. Balanced was achieved with: education, cultural boundaries, depicting the suffering but providing hope, sadness, laughter, and progress. There were times that I cried and laughed. I appreciated the stories shared by the spouse and his raw feelings. I was surprised by the number of medications CF patients take too. My heart goes out to those suffering with CF and their families. They are strong people but this DVD portrays that their lives are greatly improved by the loving support of family and skilled medical professionals.
