Two of Us

Two of Us ★★★

I loved the idea of the film: it’s so powerful and rare to see older women experiencing love and sexuality, let alone older lesbian women (‘des vieilles gouines’ as Nina puts it ❤️). However, I was pretty confused by the rhythm of the movie, that made it feel very thriller-ish, and like something bad was constantly going to happen. I also always have a bit of trouble with movies that make us feel the burden of being queer, and how the characters seem to have to pay such a heavy price for it all along? Their love felt shameful, scary and dirty, and even though that’s probably a storyline choice, I would have loved for it to be pictured in a different light.
