For this month’s ciné-club we chose to discuss a love story. Filippo Meneghetti’s first movie, Two of Us, is an incredible exploration of what it means to love and be loved in return.  Join Barbara for an online discussion after you watch – at your leisure – Deux. Thank you to our partner TV5MONDE for making our online free ciné-club happen.

Deux is a 2019 French drama film directed by Filippo Meneghetti. It was selected as the French entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards, making the shortlist of fifteen films.

Two retired women, Nina and Madeleine, 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.

The movie is available on Hulu (general subscription).
