Two of Us

Nina and Madeleine are neighbors, but they are also passionate lovers. Nina has always lived alone, while Madeleine has two children and grandchildren. Her husband has passed away. Now she can finally live her life to the fullest. But only almost. She has not yet told her family that she is in love with another woman.

Passion and love are not reserved for young people. The heart does not stop beating violently when you meet the right one, even though your age says that you have reached your autumn years. We all grow older, but we refuse to grow old.

In the roles of Nina and Madeleine, we meet two of Europe’s leading actresses. Nina is played by German Barbara Sukowa who is known from films by Fassbinder, Schlöndorff and von Trotta (Hannah Arendt). Martine Chevallier, one of France’s finest performing artists, excels in the role of Madeleine. Their interaction is sparking and wonderful.
