Main Plot

Twin boys move to a new house with their mother after she has face-changing cosmetic surgery, but under the bandages is someone the boys don't recognize.


  • Lukas Schwarz's character in Goodnight Mommy is one of the twin brothers who becomes suspicious of their mother's identity.
  • Elias Schwarz's character in "Goodnight Mommy" is a twin who suspects his mother has been replaced by an imposter.
  • Susanne Wuest's character in "Goodnight Mommy" plays the role of the boys' mother, whose identity and behavior become questionable.


In the ending of Goodnight Mommy, it is revealed that the mother, who underwent facial surgery, is actually a different woman pretending to be their real mother. The twin boys, Lukas and Elias, discover this and confront her. In a violent struggle, they accidentally set the house on fire. The film ends with the twins escaping the burning house, leaving the imposter mother trapped inside, and the real mother returning home, unaware of the chaos that has unfolded.
