Two Lives

Two Lives is a film whose setting, characters, themes, and texture all speak to a healing and grieving process that is still going on in Germany to this day, and its got little to do with jackboots and swastikas. An enthralling and often taut journey, Two Lives is a movie about not just a woman, but an entire European community attempting to heal and make peace with the wounds of its post-WWII past. As the picture delves deeper and deeper into Katrines (Juliane Köhler) past, and the story behind her arrival in Norway over twenty years before, the audience gets drawn further into the sordid past of a woman and a country that are both struggling with the dramatic political changes taking place in Europe in 1990, during the fall of the GDR (East Germanys government).
