Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Triptych is a Mexican thriller loosely inspired by actual events. It features strong violence (shootings, murders, guns; bloody wounds visible), simulated sexual activity and partial nudity (buttocks, sides of breasts), and cursing in Spanish, only some of which is translated in the English subtitles. It also addresses some mature topics, ranging from extramarital relationships to scientific, medical, and business ethics.
Is It Any Good?
This series creates an intriguing and implausible world, and those who are willing to lean into the far-fetched storylines will find it entertaining. Triptych is loosely inspired by the story of real identical male triplets separated at birth; their experiences were the subject of the 2018 documentary Three Identical Strangers. But Triptych is a dramatic thriller that uses Rebecca's discovery that she has two identical siblings as the vehicle that sets the complicated narrative in motion. As details are revealed throughout the eight-episode series, often through the use of repeated flashbacks to give them added context, viewers also learn a lot about Rebecca's troubled past and those of her sisters, much of which is attributed to being strangely connected despite having no knowledge of each other's existence.
