TWO, by Filippo Meneghetti

France. 2019. 100 '. Fiction. VF.

Nina and Madeleine, two retired, are deeply in love with each other. In the eyes of all, they are only mere neighbors living on the top floor of their building. On a daily basis, they come and go between the two apartments. The landing is a bridge between their worlds, the well-ordered life of Madeleine, grandmother, who regularly receives her daughter Anne, and the freer, more uprooted, Nina. One day, Madeleine is snatched from Nina. The landing which separates the two women then becomes a border which they will try at all costs to cross to find themselves again.

Like The Heiresses in 2018, Deux is a rare example of a movie about a senior lesbian couple. The tender relationship between the two women (magnificent Martine Chevallier and Barbara Sukowa, the ex-muse of Fassbinder!) Is however darkened by an event that tilts their balance. Innovative and pathos-free, this subtle work shows how a sentimental connection can overcome all social and physical limitations. With the overwhelming Two, we have the striking proof that love can not only survive the tragedy, but also be strengthened!

The session will take place in the presence of the film crew.
