“Two of Us” is France’s official entry for Best International Feature for the 2021 Academy Awards. It premiered to critical and audience acclaim at prestigious film festivals around the world, including Toronto, Palm Springs, London, the Hamptons, Rotterdam, Philadelphia and more.

Two retired women, Nina (Barbara Sukowa) and Madeleine (Martine Chevallier), have been secretly in love for decades. Everybody, including Madeleine’s family, thinks they are simply neighbors, sharing the top floor of their building.

They come and go between their two apartments, enjoying the affection and pleasures of daily life together, until an unforeseen event turns their relationship upside down and leads Madeleine’s daughter to gradually unravel the truth about them.

“Quietly groundbreaking. Entirely unique and uniquely vital.” — Mark Keizer, Variety

“Young lovers move over! Sukowa and Chevallier bring to life an unforgettable couple. A cause for celebration!” — Lisa Nesselson, Screen International
