Fanny, a 17-year-old student from France, goes on a language exchange trip to Germany where she will stay with her pen pal, Lena. Lena is cool, easygoing, seems to make friends with ease, and is extremely politically active. Fanny is troubled, shy, lonely, and dreams of a life like Lena’s. Willing to do anything to impress Lena, Fanny sees her time in Germany as an opportunity to invent a different life for herself but as her and Lena grow closer, she runs the risk of becoming caught up in her own web of lies.

Two of Us (Deux)

Nina and Madeleine have hidden their deep, passionate love for decades but, when their love is put to the ultimate test, only the truth can save them.

To outsiders, including Madeleine’s meddling daughter, Nina and Madeleine are simply two neighbours sharing a hallway during their sunset years. In reality, this hallway is a bridge between two worlds: one belonging to a widowed, doting grandmother, the other to a free-spirited, fiercely independent woman who longs to spend her life with the person she loves. Clandestinely, Nina and Madeleine share a tender life, moving freely between their apartments until, one day, an unexpected event closes the portal.

A heartbreakingly beautiful tale, and a romance rarely seen onscreen, Two of Us proves that love, no matter the obstacles, is worth fighting for.
