Official French submission for Best International Feature Film at the 2021 Academy Awards

Pensioners Nina (Barbara Sukowa–LOLA; HANNAH ARENDT) and Madeleine (Martine Chevallier–TELL NO ONE) have hidden their deep and passionate love for many decades.

Everyone, including Madeleine’s conventionally minded children, believes they are neighbors on friendly terms. The lovers discreetly and freely come and go between their adjacent apartments, enjoying the pleasures of daily life together without fear of outside interference — until an unforeseen event disconnects Nina from the love of her life.

“The three main actresses rise to the occasion as if fueled by piss and vinegar, so juicy are the parts they’ve been handed.” —Todd McCarthy, Deadline

“Beautifully filmed, with an assured grasp of framing as a storytelling tool, this is a classy item…. TWO OF US gives the mighty Sukowa, a distinguished veteran of the films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Margarethe von Trotta, the kind of juicy, multifaceted role too rarely afforded actresses in their later careers.” —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“Filippo Meneghetti’s debut feature TWO OF US is an entirely unique and uniquely vital lesbian love story…. An affirmation of our universal desire for emotional intimacy and how the right connection can overcome all social and physical limitations.” —Mark Keizer, Variety
