Two retired women Nina and Madeleine have been secretly in love for decades. To everyone else, including Madeleine’s family, they are simply neighbors who live on the top floor of their building. They come and go between their two apartments, sharing the tender delights of everyday life together. One day, their relationship is turned upside down by an unexpected event that leads Madeleine’s daughter to gradually reveal the truth about them.

DIRECTOR

Filippo Meneghetti

"Originally from Padua, Italy, Filippo's earliest work experience was on New York's indie film circuit. After film school and an Anthropology degree in Rome, he co-wrote the feature Imago Mortis (2009). He worked as a first assistant for several years before starting to direct his own short films, Undici (2011, co-directed by Piero Tomaselli) and L'intruso (2012), which screened and garnered prizes at festivals in Italy and abroad. In 2018, Filippo moved to France where he made his next short, The Beast, which screened in competition at SXSW 2019 and can now be seen at international festivals. Two Of Us is Filippo's first feature."
