), the story revolves around Nina and Madeleine, two pensioners who are head over heels in love with each other. As far as everyone else is concerned, they are merely neighbours. Every day, they come and go between the two flats that they occupy on the top floor of their building. Their landing serves as a gateway between two worlds: the well-ordered life of one of the women, a grandmother mindful of conventions, and the more free-spirited life of the other. Nina, an uprooted Austrian, is an independent woman who seems to be coping less and less well every day with this love confined to the shadows. One day, something tragic happens, and the doors close once again. Madeleine is snatched away from Nina. The landing that separates them turns into a gulf, a bottomless pit that they will try to bridge at any cost, just to be together again.

Produced by Pierre-Emmanuel Fleurantin and Laurent Baujard for Paprika Films together with Tarantula Luxembourg and Belgium’s Artémis Productions, Two of Us has secured a pre-purchase from Be TV and backing from the CNC’s advance on receipts, the Film Fund Luxembourg, the Occitanie region and the Soficinéma Sofica. Interestingly, the project was part of the Angers Workshops selection in 2017. The seven-week shoot will kick off in Montpellier and Sommières from 1-10 October before continuing in Luxembourg. The French release will be handled by Sophie Dulac Distribution, while the international sales have been entrusted to Doc & Film International.

As a reminder, Paprika Films has co-produced such films as Frenzy [+lee también:
