Everybody thinks that pensioners Nina and Madeleine are just good neighbours and nothing more, but in reality they have hidden their love affair for many decades. When an unexpected accident severs their bond, they must somehow find a way back to each other.
Filippo Meneghetti’s debut about unconditional love is a moving and sensitive drama lead by a strong cast that will stay with you long after you have watched it.
Rarely do LGBT films focus on characters over 40, “Two of Us” is a wonderful and heart-warming exception.
“A romance this convincingly lived-in is rare indeed. Director Filippo Meneghetti’s incredibly deft feature debut is cause for celebration.”
Lisa Nesselson, Screen
